What We Do.

Carnew Training and Development Centre facilitates a self-help culture so that people in marginalised circumstances can improve their social and economic lives by accessing training and services as a means of empowerment. We run a Jobs Club for Job Seekers and provide information regarding re-employment or starting up a new business.


We run programmes that build human capital through needs generated training. These programmes cover a range of demographics from young people to senior citizens. Our Benefit 4 programme is free, with a core objective to provide basic IT training to the harder to reach groups such as the unemployed, older people and the disadvantaged. All our courses, if not free, are affordable to our target groups and we endeavour to ensure that affordability is maintained. We are a not for profit organisation, meaning that all our courses are kept to a minimum cost to the Learner.


Carnew Training & Development Centre is associated with a range of activities and resources that address the needs of the diverse demographics in the area such as


  • Pride in Carnew Community Group
  • Summer Camps for Kids
  • Free Counselling Services
  • Coolattin Canadian Connection


Actively involved promoting local heritage to reap local economic benefits, promote social and cultural development and foster community spirit. Carnew TDC collaborates with a number of bodies to enhance Carnew- Wicklow County Council, The Heritage Council and Wicklow Leader Programme to mention but a few.
