Part- Time Courses/Shows/Training

LMETB Adult Guidance are looking forward to working at this years show in Kells. Come along and see what opportunities are open to you.


As part of the StayOn project, Meath Partnership are offering free training workshops for young people aged 20-29 who are not currently in employment. Participants will receive life and career coaching, skills training, and get to have their say about the issues affecting youths in their communities before working together to develop policies that can help to combat these issues.

The training workshops – Food Production, Digital Content Production, and Aromatherapy, will commence at the beginning of November in Meath Partnership’s office based in Kells, Co. Meath.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Jennifer Smith, Youth Engagement Projects Officer, Education and Training Centre
