Welcome to Mayo College of Further Education and Training

We offer a fresh and vibrant place to study and our aim is to ensure that lifelong learning opportunities are available to all. Students on our PLC courses may receive Level 5 or Level 6 awards which are nationally recognised and which are a stepping stone to further study or training. While many of our students go directly into the world of work, increasing numbers progress to higher educational opportunities.

If you have questions you would like to ask us, or would like further information or advice about our courses, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Our staff are friendly and welcoming and would be delighted to help.

Whichever course you take we hope your time at Westport CFE is fulfilling and enriching and that you will consider continuing your education in the future.
