Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS)

The VTOS scheme provides a range of courses to meet the education and training needs of unemployed people. Applicants must be aged over 21 years of age and in receipt of Social Welfare payment for at least 156 days before commencement of course. VTOS is aimed in particular at unemployed people who are early school-leavers. Successful applicants can receive a VTOS payment for the duration of their course instead of their social welfare payment.  They may be able to avail of additional supports including childcare support and small meal and travel allowances.
