Specialist Training Providers

Donegal ETB supports STPs in the provision of learner-focused training and related services, to assist individuals to enter or re-enter the labour market. STPs address the identified training needs of people with disabilities who are experiencing exclusion and labour market disadvantage in the form of vocational training programmes.  These programmes are offered at QQI Level 3 to Level 5.

An enhanced trainer-learner ratio is available on these programmes.

Specialist Training Providers remove or overcome barriers which, in other training environments learners with disabilities encounter disproportionately. These are addressed and met through:

  • needs relating to access
  • needs relating to training content and duration
  • non-occupational training-related needs
