Bantry Youthreach centre has recently opened a new hairdressing facility at its premises in St. Gobans, Seskin. The facility was developed over the summer by the staff and students and training began early in September.

Instruction in hairdressing skills will be offered to students as part of the FETAC level three and four programmes already running in the centre and it is expected that there will be great demand over the coming months for places. Students who study hairdressing in Bantry Youthreach centre will be eligible to apply for hairdressing courses in Further Education Colleges such as Clonakilty Community College, St. John’s Central College and Cork College of Commerce.

The co-ordinator of Bantry Youthreach Centre, Mr. Rónán Ó’Caoimh says: “This new course is an exciting development in Bantry Youthreach and is a great addition to the wide range of courses we already offer such as; Woodwork, Metalwork, Driver Education, Car Mechanics, Art, Cookery, Outdoor Pursuits, Career Guidance and Computers.” Youthreach is Ireland’s education and training programme for early school leavers. The programme is directed at unemployed young early school leavers aged 15-20.
