Selskar College has the perfect course to suit you
WHETHER you have just completed second level education, or are an adult who would like to return to education, Selskar College should have a course to suit you. The courses are full-time and last for one year.
Need another year to save for college? You could defer your CAO place and take any Level 5 course. Many of our graduates who have gone on to third level have said that they felt better prepared and more confident when they started their college course compared to students who had gone directly from school. They report that their knowledge and skills in relation to working independently, meeting deadlines and compiling assignments and projects really stood to them at college. Our courses could be just the stepping stone you need, if you haven’t decided on your third level options.
For some of you, the thought of facing classrooms, teachers and exams may seem daunting. Don’t let your anxiety stop you from improving your confidence and chances of employment. You will be supported by friendly, professional staff, who know and understand your family commitments and they will help you to overcome any fears you may have. Projects and assessments for most subjects take place throughout the year so you take control of your own learning and progression throughout the course. Your final grade does not depend on one exam.
Should you decide to study further after your course it may interest you to know that there are links from our courses into 3rd level places including some of those available at IT Carlow and Waterford IT.
Please feel free to call in to look at our facilities in Westgate or to meet with us to discuss any course on offer. We can be contacted by email selskarcollege[email protected] or telephone (053)9122753.
QQI Healthcare Qualifications
With a large number of Healthcare Agencies operating in County Wexford and a number of new nursing homes, there are more opportunities than ever for both full and part-time employment as a Healthcare Assistant. If you feel that the role of the Healthcare Assistant could be the job for you, you can gain your QQI level 5 qualifications by studying part-time at CTEC. Classes run one full day per week and most learners gain their full major award in less than 18 months.
QQI Childcare Qualifications -level5&6
You can study for the QQI level 5 Early Childhood Care & Education National Certificate and QQI level 6 Early Childhood Care & Education Advanced Certificate at evening classes at CTEC. Again, classes are modular so you can study in the evenings until you gain your major award. Selected modules at QQI level 6 are run following the Montessori Methodology and you can also include a Special Needs Assistant (SNA) module to increase your opportunities for getting employment.
QQI level 6 Special Purpose Award in Training & Development
This new award has replaced the popular FETAC Train the Trainer qualification. It consists of two separate modules – QQI level 6 Training Needs Identification and Design and QQI level 6 Training Delivery & Evaluation. When you successfully complete both modules you will be awarded a QQI level 6 Special Purpose Award. If you already have a FETAC level 6 Train the Trainer Award that is less than 5 years old, contact CTEC to see if you can gain an exemption towards part of the new Special Purpose Award.
Whether you are a complete beginner or looking for a qualification to improve your career prospects, CTEC can offer a variety of courses from ECDL to QQI courses in Payroll, Bookkeeping, Accounts and Reception and Office Skills. Our Payroll course has been updated to include the new PAYE Project to ensure you are fully prepared for employment in this area.
