Courses are delivered in a welcoming environment by a highly qualified and enthusiastic team of tutors who each have a real passion for their speciality. Under their guidance learners are given the chance to develop skills for work or fun, alongside like-minded learners with similar interests. Artist and blacksmith Eric O’Neill, a City & Guilds tutor, is a perfect example of this as he has brought the ancient craft of blacksmithing to East Limerick. Learners embarking on this unique course will learn how to use forge hearths and specialist blacksmith tools, and forge metal under Eric’s expert guidance.
All of the team at the campus are ready to help you choose the right option for you and your lifestyle, taking into consideration any work and family commitments. Supports on-site include educational guidance and a self-access Learning Hub, designed to help you with your own individual Further Education and Training journey. Other learning supports available include device loans, one-to-one support and assistive technology.
