Education and Training Boards (ETBs)

In the past, the Vocational Educational Committees (VECs) were the main providers of further education in Ireland. On July 1st 2013, Minister for Education and Skills Ruairí Quinn T.D. announced the establishment of sixteen Education and Training Boards. These statutory education authorities, formed from the aggregation of Ireland’s 33 VECs and the integration of the former FÁS Training Centres, will be the vehicles for the delivery of coordinated education and training programmes across Ireland.

ETBI is the national representative association​​​​ for Ireland's 16 Education and Training Boards (ETBs).
