About us

About us and our training programmes

The establishment of the Clare Unemployment Resource Centre in October 1991 resulted from the identification of the need for services to the increasing number of unemployed in County Clare. The Clare Unemployment Resource Centre was unique in its establishment in close co-operation with the VEC. The Adult Education Office provided the necessary premises for the Centre to open in October 1991 to September 1996. The name of the Centre was subsequently changed to Congress Information & Opportunity Centre. Over the years, the Centre has developed into an accredited centre for Information Technology Training, which are of huge benefit to our Target Groups in their endeavour to improve their chances of getting gainful employment, or going on to further training and education courses.
