Training centre progresses at Crookstown

A 10-week Warehousing Course will be available in September at the Education and Training Centre being established in the old primary school in Crookstown.

The course is one of a number planned by the Kildare and Wicklow Education & Training Board (KWETB) which has recently gone to tender for works to refurbish the premises as a training centre. These will include ICT courses from Basic level up to Level 6 and construction courses incorporating Autocad design and BIM.

“The community education element is a blank canvas for local groups and individuals to get what they need which might be Arts & Crafts, Spanish classes, or cookery courses,” says Deputy Martin Heydon, pictured with FG colleague Cllr Ivan Keatley at the former school where both received their early education.

“Feedback is being requested from local individuals or groups on courses that would be of interest. Individuals who have ideas or who wish to make expressions of interest for courses in the centre should contact, or email me on, or give me a call.”
