The Back To Education Initiative (BTEI) provides part-time further education courses mainly for people with less than upper second-level education.

BTEI courses are usually level 3 and 4 on the National Qualification Framework (NFQ). The BTEI allows people to study part-time (up to 400 hours per year). It is possible to obtain a major award at NFQ levels 1-6 where part-time courses are undertaken on a modular basis over time and combined to complete a major award.
