Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board (Clare) Back to Education Initiative


Welcome to The Back to Education Initiative (BTEI)web page. BTEI is part of the Further Education Service of the Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board.


The Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) will provide opportunities to return to learning for young people and adults. It is a re-entry route for those in the workplace who wish to upgrade their skills in line with emerging needs. Its emphasis on part time provision provides a chance to combine a return to education and training with family, work and other responsibilities.
A set of broadly agreed principles make explicit the values underpinning the BTEI – namely Learner Centredness; Equality; Accessibility & Inclusiveness; Recognising & Accommodating Diversity; Innovation; Local Consultation and Quality Assurance.

Target Group

The overall objective of the BTEI is to increase the participation of young people and adults with less than upper secondary education in a range of flexible learning opportunities.
A priority is to target individuals and groups that experience particular and acute barriers to participation, and are more difficult to engage in the formal learning process.
