As a result of our previous Pre-Apprenticeships 95% of participants are now in full time apprenticeships, employment or have gone on to further education.
The Engineering Pre-Apprenticeship is a Longford/Westmeath Education and Training Board (LWETB) Local Training Initiative. This is a full-time 50 week QQI Level 4 accredited course for people who are unemployed or in receipt of a disability allowance. A training allowance is available to eligible candidates.
A pre-apprenticeship is a stepping stone to get into the industry of your choice. If you are 16 or over and interested in engineering apprenticeships or working as a machine operator in a precision engineering workshop, this is a good starter course for you.

|Tony Lynch - Pre-Apprenticeship Coordinator|
|With a Level 7 in Training and Continuing Education, Certificate in Community Development, Certificate in Integrating Literacy, experience in Milling and Turning, 16 years’ experience as a supervisor and tutor at Coolamber National Training Centre and 14 years' experience as coordinator and tutor of the Revamp Training Project I have gained invaluable experience of working with various learners. During my time as coordinator, the Revamp Training Project was successful in winning the AONTAS Star Award for outstanding contribution to Adult Learning. I was also instrumental in the setting up of and managing of the Revamp 3RStore from 2004 to 2008 when it became separate from the training programme. I look forward to coordinating this new and exciting venture "Longford Pre Apprenticeship Programme" for many years to come.|
|Padraig Dooney - Pre-Apprenticeship Assistant Coordinator|
|With a background in construction I witnessed the need for education and training so I retrained and gained 12 years invaluable experience as both a tutor and assistant coordinator with the Revamp Training Project. I was also involved in the setting up of the Revamp 3RStore and assisting in it prior to it becoming a separate identity to the Revamp Training Project. Now with my experience in Milling and Turning I look forward to working alongside my colleagues on the new Longford Pre Apprenticeship Engineering Programme. I hope we can bring it to a similar success as the AONTAS Star award winning Revamp Training Project.|
