Galway and Roscommon Education & Training Board


GTI is one of the leading colleges of Further Education in Ireland, providing QQI Level 5 & 6 courses to over 1,000 learners annually. At GTI, courses are designed to be of immediate and practical use in the workplace or as a stepping stone to further study and higher qualifications. Everything our students learn will be valuable to them throughout their lives. Our Applied Learning approach is designed to enable students learn more effectively in real-life situations. Applied Learning provides our students with learning experiences that involve solving problems that are based on real-life situations. Examples include, learning the role of a sound engineer, in GTI’s state of the art sound recording studio, or working as a Beauty Therapist in GTI’s Poise Salon. Each department has its own unique real-life, real-time production/event/project. By bringing the real world into the classroom and the classroom into the real world, Applied Learning has become the most effective and exciting way to learn the key skills required for the 21st Century. GTI’s underlying philosophy is about learning together. This is centred on learner activity, collaborative learning and critically, learning to learn. GTI are delighted to have been awarded Erasmus+ 𝐀𝐜𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 and 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐱𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐋𝐚𝐛𝐞𝐥 under the New Erasmus+ Programme. The Award of the Erasmus accreditation confirms that GTI has set up a plan to implement high quality mobility activities as part of a wider effort to develop our organisation.

GTI has built a bank of experience and expertise spanning almost 13 years which has had a profoundly positive impact on GTI’s development as a leading College of Further Education.  The Excellence Label awarded to Galway Technical Institute was based on the excellent quality of projects and development through Erasmus+ to date and will be recognised between the 1st March 2021 and 31st December 2027.
