Minister Mitchell O’Connor also mentioned the significance of online study, and acknowledged Griffith College’s dedication to online study in the form of its blended learning and online courses. “The location of the campus in Dublin 1 is to be commended. The College plans to offer upskilling and training for those living in the city centre and is keen to reach out to the many DEIS post primary schools to assist in increasing participation in third-level by designing programmes which will give these students the confidence and motivation to consider higher education. I understand that the process of building a network with schools and community representatives in the locality is well underway,” she said.
