Level 5 cour­ses can lead to an in­ter­est­ing and ful­fill­ing job in just one year. BCFE’s Early Child­hood Care and Ed­u­ca­tion course has an out­stand­ing record of suc­cess. Stu­dents reg­u­larly go straight into employment at the end of course. Ac­cord­ing to Ber­nadette Keegan, Head of Child­care in BCFE, “the course is ideal for any­one who is in­ter­ested in work­ing with chil­dren. It is a good mix of the­ory and prac­tice. Stu­dents learn about child devel­op­ment, well-be­ing and the im­por­tance of play. The sec­tor is grow­ing and be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pro­fes­sion­al­ized. The level 5 course is the en­try level for work in the sec­tor and it is also the foun­da­tion for fur­ther study and pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment in the fu­ture.”

Other course in So­cial Care, such as Care of the Per­son with Spe­cial Needs leads to a dual qual­i­fi­ca­tion and work as a Health Care As­sis­tant or a Spe­cial Needs As­sis­tant and the Com­mu­nity and Health Ser­vices course sim­i­larly lead to employment or to fur­ther study.

Busi­ness and Travel and Tourism are also ex­cel­lent ca­reer choices. Ac­cord­ing to Diane McGill, Busi­ness Co­or­di­na­tor, “Busi­ness is a great area to study. Our two year course is an ex­cel­lent foun­da­tion for fur­ther study and many of our stu­dents progress to Busi­ness de­gree pro­grammes in IT Tal­laght. The course, as a gen­eral Busi­ness course, opens up av­enues within all ar­eas of busi­ness. Grad­u­ates of busi­ness from BCFE can start ca­reers in ac­counts, HR, sales and mar­ket­ing and man­age­ment.” Stu­dents from the Busi­ness and Travel & Tourism travel abroad for work ex­pe­ri­ence in Fin­land, Malta and Por­tu­gal supported by Eras­mus+.
