Open event for adult learners at CIT
A registration and open evening will be held at Cork Institute of Technology ( CIT) on September 5 for those wishing to take part in continued education through evening and weekend courses.
CIT incorporates CIT Cork School of Music, CIT Crawford College of Art & Design and the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) and has many opportunities for those wishing to return to education in all disciplines — Business and Accounting, Human Resource Management, Computing, Engineering, Science, Humanities, Art, Music and the Maritime area, as well as Springboard Programmes and customised in-company, training.
It offers the full range of Higher Education qualifications, including Higher Certificates, Bachelor Degrees and Honours Bachelor Degrees, as well as Masters and PhD Degrees.
CIT provides a comprehensive and relevant suite of courses for the adult learners. The courses are designed to provide greater opportunities to those seeking employment and additional security for those in employment.
CIT President, Dr Brendan Murphy said continuing education and CPD are a major part of the strategic role that CIT plays in this region.
“Of our 14,500 plus registrations, almost 8,000 are fulltime 3rd and 4th level and over 3,000 are Continuing Education and CPD learners,” he said.
According to Don Crowley, Head of Department of Organisation & Professional Development, “CIT’s Continuing Education Programme offers every incentive to participants through Recognition of Prior Learning; accumulation of credits (ACCS) which supports flexible learning and the Incremental Approach (Ladder system) which acts as a motivation to progress further on the National Framework of Qualifications ”.
