Speaking at the opening of the  Facility, Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris TD said:

“I am delighted to be in Cavan today to officially open this facility and to meet the young people who will benefit from the learning opportunities offered by CMETB. This state of the art facility will make a real difference to the educational journey of students in the Cavan Institute.

“This facility will give 300 students access to:

  • A recording studio
  • A performance space for theatre and music
  • Beauty therapy salons
  • A spa and hydrotherapy facility
  • Computer laboratories
  • Science laboratories
  • Sports therapy practical training rooms
  • Student social spaces
  • And a fully equipped gym

“The Education and Training Facility marks a significant development for learners and communities in the Cavan Monaghan region, but also an important milestone in the evolution of FET facilities.

“Under my Department’s FET College of the future Major Projects Fund, a huge project was approved for the development of a 1,000-pupil facility for Cavan Institute which is proceeding to the next stage of the assessment process now.

“While that project is progressing, and to provide more suitable interim accommodation, I approved the acquisition and fit out of this significant modular unit to provide an enhanced learning environment.”

Chief Executive of CMETB Dr Fiona McGrath said:

“Cavan and Monaghan ETB are delighted to celebrate the official opening of this new Education and Training facility for Cavan Institute.

“This significant investment by Minister Harris’ Department reinforces CMETB’s commitment to deliver accessible, high-quality Further Education and Training programmes to learners, thereby empowering our region’s growth and prosperity through education.

“These new facilities will enrich the educational experience for the learners and staff at Cavan Institute.”
