Dublin South East Community Training Centre (formerly Ringsend CTC) has been open since 1986. It was officially opened by Ruairi Quinn TD Minister for Labour & the Public Service  to serve the early school leaver or young unemployed person with excellent opportunities for learning, education and training. This centre of excellence is run by a voluntary Board of Management and managed by Denis Murphy and a dedicated team of trainers who tailor their training to suit each individuals specific needs. We are funded and supported by the City of Dublin Education Training Board. This project is part supported by the Irish government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.

Join us, and together  we can develop  an individual learning plan designed to meet your specific needs.We will work with you, to help you achieve QQI certification and to get you placed on the first step on the  National Framework of  Qualifications. This will  enable you to work  towards further training, education and a career of your choice. The journey starts here in our centre of excellence.
