DÚN LAOGHAIRE Col­lege of Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion (DCFE) has re­branded to be­come Dún Laoghaire Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tute (DFEi). DFEi will con­tinue to pro­vide qual­ity Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion (FE) cour­ses in the fol­low­ing ar­eas:

Our new re­brand­ing in­cludes the up­grad­ing of our in­for­ma­tion pro­vi­sion through a new brochure which is now avail­able from DFEi and our new web­site, which will go live on the 23rd Jan­uary 2013,

For over 35 years, DFEi has been cen­tral to the pro­vi­sion of high qual­ity day and evening cour­ses within Dún Laoghaire. Our fa­cil­i­ties have been up­graded in or­der to en­hance and de­velop our cour­ses in line with cur­rent trends in FE both na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. Our cour­ses are dy­namic, meet spe­cial­ist needs and pro­vide qual­ity qual­i­fi­ca­tions. All of our cour­ses at DFEi are qual­ity as­sured and are recog­nised at ei­ther Level 5 or Level 6 on the Na­tional Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Frame­work. Each course has clear iden­ti­fi­able lad­ders of pro­gres­sion from Level 5 to Level 6. DFEi cour­ses will as­sist learn­ers in up-skilling and en­hanc­ing their qual­i­fi­ca­tions, which in turn will al­low learn­ers to achieve 3rd level qual­i­fi­ca­tions or to find path­ways to em­ploy­ment. The chal­lenge in FE is to in­ter­pret and an­a­lyse em­ployer’s needs and to de­velop ef­fec­tive train­ing pro­grammes. DFEi will con­tinue to meet th­ese needs.

Learn­ers of all ages and back­grounds such as school leavers, ma­ture learn­ers, grad­u­ates, in­ter­na­tional learn­ers, sec­ond-chance, learn­ers seek­ing to progress to 3rd level, re­cently un­em­ployed and those seek­ing em­ploy­ment are wel­come in DFEi. Ap­pli­ca­tions for day cour­ses for the aca­demic year 2013/2014 will open for both on­line (pre­ferred) or man­ual ap­pli­ca­tions on Jan­uary 30.

Our brochure and web­site con­tains de­tailed in­for­ma­tion on how to ap­ply, what ser­vices and as­sis­tance is avail­able to learn­ers and de­tails of life and ac­tiv­i­ties at DFEi. If you have any ques­tions or queries you can con­tact us as fol­lows
