Childcare Education and Training Support (CETS) Programme

 

This strand formerly catered for FÁS and VEC training course participants. Following the establishment of the Local Education and Training Boards, Strand 1 is now administered on behalf of the Department of Education, who have sole  responsibility for deciding who is eligible to avail of this strand of the Programme.
To avail a place under Strand 1, parents must obtain a letter of eligibility provided by their local Education and Training Board or SOLAS.


For ETB/SOLAS places the letter must contain:

  • The name of the parent
  • The name of the eligible course
  • The start date of the course
  • The number of weeks of the course and/or the end date of the course
  • Confirmation that they are eligible for subsidised childcare under the CETS programme for this course.
