Students of Bray Adult Learning Centre received their certificates at a ceremony in the Little Flower Hall on the evening of Monday, October 21.

It was a wonderful night of celebration, as staff and students welcomed KWETB director of further education and training, Ken Seery, to present the awards to students who have completed QQI courses at the centre. Tutors and students joined together to celebrate all the hard work undertaken during the last year. Ken Seery congratulated the students on their achievements and presented QQI Component and Major Awards to over 60 adult learners.

Niamh Maguire, Coordinator of Bray Adult Learning acknowledged the effort and commitment it takes to return to learning as an adult and told the students they should be proud of their achievements. Students Rosie and Ana outlined how much their skills and confidence have grown over the last few years. The students were joined in their celebrations by their tutors and family and friends who support and encourage them as they progress on their learning journey. Bray Adult Learning Centre provides a first step back into education for adult learners who wish to return to education and improve their basic skills. The centre offers a wide range of part-time courses and QQI modules at Levels 2, 3 and 4.
