County Kildare FAS Community Training Projects are Initatives under the National Development Plan Supported by the EU
 

   

Introduction

The county of Kildare combines with Dublin West to form the FÁS region of Dublin West and Kildare - one of ten such regions nationwide. The administrative headquarters of the region is the Ballyfermot Training Centre, where the Regional Director and a number of the Regional Managers are located. For operational reasons Kildare is divided into two sub-regions to service the north and south county respectively. Sub Regional Offices are located in Celbridge and Naas. FÁS training initiatives are budgeted at two main priority groups... early school leavers and the long-term-unemployed.

Community Employment Schemes

Community Employment is a FÁS programme that benefits both the community and the participants. The projects are involved in areas such as arts, community recreation, environmental, community advice and support, schools, tourism, health and welfare services. CE schemes can provide long term unemployed people with part-time work opportunities and training/development options and it can help you into a job and/or further education and training.
