Part-time Prospectus Launch
On 20th June 2016, Mr Barrie O’Connell, President, Cork Chamber, launched the Cork Institute of Technology Continuing Education Prospectus for the Academic Year 2016/17. CIT is the largest provider of Continuing Education and Continuing Professional Development outside of Dublin and the new prospectus contains information on all part-time programmes.
For CIT, Continuing Education and Continuing Professional Development are important and growing areas of its total education provision and consists of programmes offered in Business and Accounting, Humanities, Art, Music, Counselling and the Therapies, Computing, Engineering, Science and the Maritime area. Courses range from Level 6 (Higher Certificate) to Level 10 (Doctorate Level) on the National Framework of Qualifications as well as customised courses, in-company training and Springboard Programmes for those on the live register.
Speaking at the launch, Dr Brendan Murphy, President of CIT said: “In these challenging times CIT has responded by offering a comprehensive range of relevant programmes and flexible learning approaches: for those returning to education, for first time students or those wishing to update their skills, students looking for accredited programmes and organisations looking to upskill staff, CIT has something on offer.
Don Crowley, Head of Department of Organisation & Professional Development says that “Mature students achieve at CIT because of small class sizes, the support of Lecturers and a student-focused approach to learning. In most areas, students commence a Level 6, Higher Certificate programme and can progress right through to Level 7 Degree, Level 8 Honours Degree, Level 9 Masters and professional qualifications and Level 10 Doctorate.”
|Barrie O’Connell said: “In the current economic climate people realise the importance of education, of retraining, upskilling, professional accreditation or going back to education for the first time to increase their chances of employment. These programmes offer students the opportunity to do this and achieve their full potential and make themselves more employable after completion.”|
