Post Leaving Certificate Programme
Our PLC Courses offer a mixture of practical work, academic work and work experience. They are designed as a step towards skilled employment and, as such, they are closely linked to industry and its needs. Our Post Leaving Certificate courses adopt an integrated approach, focusing on technical knowledge, core skills and work experience. Almost half of the time spent on these courses is devoted to knowledge and skill training related to employment, with a further quarter spent on relevant work-based experience.
We are offering Level 5 PLC Courses, validated by QQI in
- Early Childhood Education with Special Need Assistant (subject to validation)
- Business & Computer Skills
- Sport & Recreation
(Full Time / Part-Time Options available).
In general, you should have finished your secondary education and taken your Leaving Certificate examination in order to be eligible for a PLC course. However, if you have work experience relevant to the course on offer or think you can demonstrate a particular ability in that area, you should write contact us and ask to meet the co-ordinator of the course. Those over 23 (no upper age limit) are considered to be a “mature student” and do not have to have passed any state examination for entry to any course.
You may be eligible for a means-tested student grant or a Back to Education Allowance, depending on your circumstances. Our document on Grants for students in further and higher education describes who qualifies for a grant and how to apply.
