 Eligibility

 Leaving Certificate or Leaving Certificate Applied Qualifications. The Leaving Certificate is not a requirement for mature students who wish to return to full-time education.

Certification:

 The courses in the College are certified by The Further Education and Training Awards Council (FETAC), a body set up by he Government to provide nationally recognised qualifications in a range of subjects.  This guarantees that all programmes are planned and delivered to the highest standards.

Can I use my FETAC Award to continue to Higher Education Courses?

 Yes.  A number of places are reserved at Higher Education for applicants who apply with a FETAC Level 5 Award.  Each Higher Education Institute publishes a list of linked awards, i.e. The FETAC Awards it will recognise for application to its own courses.  The link between the two systems is called the Higher Education Links Scheme (HELS) and further details are available from the college or from the FETAC website, www.fetac.ie

Can I get a grant?

 Yes. Grants are available to eligible students.  Eligibility depends on individual circumstances and a grant must be applied for, through the local VEC on an individual basis.  Application forms are available in July/August from your Local VEC Office.  A Back to Education Allowance is also available to eligible students.

 Job Opportunities: 

 Many students come to the college to study new courses or to update their existing skills.  Each year all our students go on work experience as part of their course.  Through this system the college has made excellent contacts with many employers who may approach the college with permanent job vacancies.  The record of students from our college getting permanent positions in prestigious companies is second to none.
