We offer Full time courses at QQI Level 3 to 5. What makes us different from mainstream education providers is that our classes are smaller, you get individual attention from your instructor and you work at your own pace. We have continuous intake so you start when you are ready. We have a teacher who can help you with study skills, literacy and numeracy. We also have a psychologist and an advocacy officer on the staff, they can help you overcome obsticles to getting back to work or going on the third level education.
