Post Leaving-Certificate Course


Healthcare PLC - FETAC Level 5
1 year course offering training in a number of QQI Level 5 Modules, suitable for adults who wish to work in the healthcare area.

This September we are offering a Healthcare Course to adults who require qualifications in this area. It can also be used as a stepping stone for those who wish to further their training in Social Studies. The course includes modules in care skills and support, social studies, human growth and development, nutrition, care provision and practice, and safety and health at work. It will also cover the general modules of communications and work experience. The course will last from September to May. Students attending the course will be able to apply for student grants under the National System at www.susi.ie. A course fee of €200 will apply as directed by the DES. This fee applies to all PLC courses, however learners on social welfare are exempt from such fees. The course will also require learners to be Garda vetted. Additional workshops in Cardiac First Response training, Child protection training, and Manual and Patient Handling training will also be organised for the learners. An appropriate fee will be charged for these workshops. The course is demanding and we would expect participants to have completed their Leaving Certificate or equivalent. Mature students are most welcome to apply.
