Newbridge Youth Training & Development welcomes Minister Simon Harris

Monday, November 29, 2021

Newbridge Youth Training & Development Centre (YTDC) welcomed Minister for Higher and Further Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris, TD to its centre. Minister Harris met with learners and staff, even partaking in some word burning and robot soccer!

The Minister viewed a wide range of courses and excellent resources available and saw the many achievements learners have made.

We are also delighted Minister Harris launched our new Coding & Robotics Course along with our Foundation Access Programme, giving learners the opportunity to master in-demand cutting edge skills and clear career pathways for further study. We are so proud these courses are supported by Maynooth University, Coding Ireland and the National Council for Exercise & Fitness (NCFE) at the University of Limerick.
