Welcome to The Cork Training Centre
Cork Training Centre is a large training facility in Bishopstown dedicated to providing multiple options for further education to the local economy.
We provide a wide range of training programmes, including apprenticeships, day courses, night courses and online courses in various subjects like information technology, commercial and industrial training, business administration and beauty and health care. The training courses we offer are recognised by leading awarding institutions, and some are also QQI certified.
Our overall goal is to help employers, employees, and individuals in Cork fulfil specific business and career goals. In addition to our facility in Bishopstown, Cork Training Centre has two satellite locations in Carrigaline which house our Biopharma Training Facility and the other on Model Farm Road, Cork which is the location of our Hospitality Training Facility. Where required, we supplement in-house training with community training and in-house training.
The Cork Training Centre is under the remit of Cork Education and Training Board (CETB), funded by Solas to provide further education and training to meet the local economy’s needs.
Cork Training Centre is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
Community Training Centres are also co-funded by the Irish Government, the European Social Fund and the Youth Employment Initiative as part of the ESF Programme for Employability Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
