Introduction to VTOS

VTOS stands for Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme.  This scheme was devised with adults in mind and is run by the Galway-Roscommon Education & Training Board.  Eligible participants are offered the chance to return to full-time education and training while retaining their social welfare benefits.

To be eligible, participants must be over 21 years and unemployed for 6 months or more. It aims to enable and encourage participants to reach their potential through their involvement in one of the programmes offered.
