Success Stories


“It gave me the self-confidence to follow my dreams.  If it were not for the centre I would be where I am today.  After completing my Level 3 and Level 4 in Athlone CTC,  I was accepted to Moate Business College where I successfully completed the Level 5 Social Studies course.  I am now working full time for SONAS Nursing Home as a HealthCare Assistant in Athlone.  I am very happy in my life and I give special thanks to the centre for that”.


“I enjoyed the two years I was in the centre. The staff were very helpful and kind. The time in the centre gave me confidence and maturity to realise that working is such an important part of life.  I now work for Eddie Rockets and am very happy with how life has turned out for me”.


“My time at Athlone CTC has got me where I am today. I couldn’t have done it without the brilliant staff and my instructor, Marilyn.  I am now a fulltime hairdresser at Custom Cuts in Athlone”.


“The centre gave me a second chance and developed my passion for hairdressing.  I now own my hair salon in Athlone”
