Peter McVerry Trust operates two specialist Learning Centres in Dublin.
In 2019, Peter McVerry Trust took on the management of two pre-exisiting Learning Centres in Dublin – PMVT Learning Centre – Carline in Lucan and PMVT Learning Centre – CMS in the south inner city.
PMVT Learning Centres work with young people who cannot access mainstream education due to a number of circumstances, for example: need for further learning support, educational, emotional, social or behavioural challenges.
We aim to provide young people with a high-quality education program which meets the students’ individual learning needs and maximises their intrinsic abilities to engage in continued learning. Furthermore, we aim to enable young people to recognise the positive impact education has on their future development.
In September 2021, PMVT Learning Centres welcomed 71 students into the Junior Certificate programme, an increase from 38 the year before.
