This person is in receipt of PUP since April 2020.  PUP is not a qualifying scheme for Education and Training courses.  We have a number of such customers who are potential FET (Further Education and Training) participants and I wish to advise that this matter is currently under consideration by the Department and we will revert to the person concerned once a determination has been made in relation to same.  Individuals may apply online for Solas/FET courses. It is not possible to reserve places on those courses, waitlists apply and numbers are restricted due to social distancing requirements.
