Learning Support

In certain circumstances, some learners may need additional supports to enable them to benefit fully from their course. The Higher Education Authority (HEA) Fund for students with disabilities aims to assist students with disabilities and specific learning difficulties to participate in Further Education/PLC courses.

Registered students may apply for support under this fund, through the college, at or after course commencement. Documentary evidence verifying the student’s particular disability must be provided, enabling the college to submit the necessary application to the Higher Education Authority (HEA). The support available to learners depends on the grant, if any, allocated by the HEA. Further information on the fund for students with disabilities is available on www.studentfinance.ie.

Work experience module placement

All adult students in the college are afforded the opportunity to participate in a programme of work experience during their course of studies. This is an integral part of the learning experience, and can offer crucial links into future employment.
