Why not check out the Post Leaving Certificate vacancies and Life Long Learning opportunities at Cabra Community College

There are a number of benefits to returning to education as a mature student; including resuming a disrupted education, improving your employment opportunities, developing your intellectual interests and getting a real sense of achievement by gaining a nationally recognised qualification.

If you have been away from formal education for some time, you may find the prospect of exams and assignments daunting. The experienced and professional staff at Cabra CC are very supportive. Students are offered additional study opportunities, examination techniques and extra guidance to help achieve their goals.

Cabra CC offers full and part-time places to adults thinking of expanding their knowledge base. Whether you are returning to full-time or a part-time education as a mature student, the college has a wide range of courses and student supports that will meet your needs.

Kathy Jones, Principal at Cabra CC, explains that learning is more than up-skilling – it enriches our life and allows us to indulge in creative thinking. The college provides a friendly environment which helps to make learning an enjoyable experience. Lifelong learning has been found to be one of the cures to boredom and loneliness.  Students make lasting friendships during their time studying at the college.

The College, which specialises in lifelong learning, has a two year Adult Leaving Certificate Course which is a real alternative study choice. Students receive quality course materials, guidance and step by step tuition with excellent feedback.   Past students have commented on the supportive environment in the College which encouraged them to succeed. If you have completed the Leaving Certificate or have other relevant life experience, this Post-Leaving Certificate (PLC) course may be the one you are looking for.

Cabra CC has a few places remaining on its PLC Business Studies Programme (QQI Level 5). The course is full-time and for one academic year. It offers a mixture of practical work, academic work and work experience. It is designed as a stepping stone towards further education, starting your own business or skilled employment. The PLC is closely linked to industry and its needs. Cabra Community College PLC courses offer Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) accreditation at level 5 on the National Framework of Qualifications

Cabra CC has an active Student Council which works to keep the student voice at the heart of education. The Council regularly organises outings for adults during the year to enhance their education experience.
