Minister Tom Hayes TD Minster of State at the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine during his address expressed the importance of such programmes as SFW.  The minister noted that key to the major success of the programme “was the commitment by the VECs, the educationalists, the tutors, co-ordinator, workers and all involved on the cold face”.  He went on to say the reality is that all workers need to be educated to gain the skills required to succeed in the workplace and  the community.

Minister Hayes wished the SFW programme every success as he formally launched the four new resources.
