About Us:

The Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme is designed to help unemployed adults return to full time education without losing their social welfare benefits.

Participants are required to have been unemployed for six months and must be over 21 years of age.

The course is free to eligible persons and some travel expenses are paid. Students retain their Social Welfare Benefits for the duration of the course. Childcare support is also available and a Guidance and Counselling service is available to all students.

VTOS create opportunities for students to:

  • Continue their education and develop new skills
  • Gain recognised qualifications
  • Find good employment or access to further education
  • Develop new interests and create new experiences
  • Make lifelong friends

Swinford’s VTOS Computer-based Business Studies Course will help participants make the transition back into paid employment or to further education. Participants will make new friends; improve their confidence & skills and acquire valuable education qualifications in an adult friendly environment.
