About us

The Noreside Resource Centre is a not for profit oranisation, set up in 1987 as a direct response to a need for an information source independent of government departments. The Noreside Resource Centre sources and provides information on any subject, although work is focused on Labour and Family Law matters, Tribunals and Appeals.

We run numerous QQI Accredited Courses suited to beginners right up to experienced users. We also provide New ECDL, as well as 1-to-1 tuition at whatever level you may be and in whatever subject/level you would like to achieve.

The centre constantly enrolls participants for our FREE computer/internet tuition programme (currently ICS Digital Skills for Citizens) – consisting of ten hours free structured tuition, delivered at the centre or on an outreach basis.

The Centre is staffed by 15 workers on a Community Employment Scheme, and the services provided have continuously evolved to ensure that we may continue to offer a comprehensive range of training options, practical resources, labour law advice and representation to the people of Kilkenny.
