There is also a new full time Business Studies with Medical Administration course that is aimed at anyone seeking to work as an administrator in a hospital or health care setting.
Full time courses give students the opportunity to gain a QQI Major Award over one year. Students can then progress to employment in their chosen area. Students who have completed a QQI Level 5 course successfully may use their results to apply for a course in Institutes of Technology and Universities through the Higher Education Links Scheme. Part time courses offer a flexible option to students to study at a pace that suits, allowing them to complete a QQI Major Award over two years. Many of our graduates have progressed to complete degrees in a variety of disciplines including Nursing, Social Studies and Computer Engineering. Graduates have also gained employment with large and small companies, multi nationals, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, beauty salons and as hairdressers.
At Collinstown Park Community College we aim to ensure that our courses are affordable. Social Protection recipients may be eligible to return to education under various schemes including VTOS/BTEA/BTEI. These schemes allow eligible adults return to education without losing their benefits. Our part-time courses are funded under the Back to Education Initiative (BTEI). Courses may be provided free of charge to eligible students in receipt of Social Protection payments/Medical Card holders or early school leavers. Childcare assistance is available on a limited basis for certain eligible students.
The Open Day on the 22nd of February will give all those with an interest in studying at Collinstown Park Community College a chance to find out more about individual course content and talk to the course Tutors.
