Our mission is to offer opportunities to eligible unemployed adults to acquire educational and training qualifications in a friendly and supportive atmosphere thus enabling students to progress to further education and employment.

VTOS was established in 1989 and is a centre dedicated to providing adults with further or “second chance” education opportunities and consistent with that aim, we offer 10 courses which are all QQI accredited.

We are located on the Tuam Road and our facilities include three computer rooms, sound engineering studio, TV/film studio, art and craft rooms, photography studio and general classrooms.

The participants are encouraged to be actively involved in accepting responsibility for their own learning. We are proud of our record of academic success, the support we give our students, the progression rates to third level institutions and to employment, and the excellence of the facilities available in VTOS.

Déanfar chuile iarracht chun go mbeadh do sheal anseo i VTOS chomh torthúil agus chomh sásúil agus is féidir.
