in News by

A MESSAGE from Limerick College of Further Education, who are now taking applications for their September courses.

Are you unsure about what educational choices to make over the next few months?  Limerick College of Further Education is here to help. The beauty of our one-year QQI Level 5,6 and Pre-Apprenticeship courses means you gain a qualification which allows you to work in particular industries and opens up many new progression routes to third level.

We can offer learners the time to make the right future choice. During Leaving Certificate year, it can be hard to know what course to pursue at third level along with the pressure of studying. Why not take the time after Leaving Cert this year to make the right choice and take up a Post Leaving Certificate Course? PLC offers a different way to learn with more focus on assignments, projects and active learning, gaining invaluable skills for work or third level.

Limerick College of Further Education (LCFE) is located in the heart of Limerick with an outreach centre in Cappamore.  It welcomes applications from Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate Applied, Mature Learners and any learner who is willing to study and learn new skills. We have over 70 courses in various areas to choose from.

Deciding on what career to pursue for the rest of your life can be extremely challenging. Many of our past learners have come back to us saying a PLC course was one of the smartest educational decisions they made. Sometimes, interestingly, a learner will change direction completely after their PLC course and choose to go a different way – a sign of a successful PLC year! The PLC route can open many new doors through the CAO to University and Institutes of Technology courses that may not have been an option from Leaving Certificate points.

Parents and learners avoid the costly mistake of choosing the wrong third level course, which could run into thousands of Euro’s. Studying in LCFE will enable you to gain skills and, most importantly, work experience in your area of interest and help you make the right future choice. Once you successfully complete a PLC course, you have expanded your options whether that is going into employment, taking on an apprenticeship or choosing a third level course and a career you now know for sure you want to pursue.

We wish everyone to stay safe in these uncertain and difficult times and when it is safe, Limerick College of Further Education is here for you.

To secure a place on a course with LCFE visit www.lcfe.ie and apply online.  We will be processing applications and offering places in May.
