Sancta Maria College is a provider of PLC Courses / Adult Education.  This is a valuable resource in our community and we would love to see more people engaging with us and benefiting from this service.

We are currently accepting enrolments for Post Leaving Cert Courses for the academic year beginning Sept 2019.

The benefits of lifelong learning go beyond the traditional view of keeping the mind sharp or improving memory. In today’s global work force, continual learning is an important component of improving job skills. You may wish to learn a skill to enhance your possibilities in the job market, take professional training in a particular area, re-train in a new area for future employment or take a stepping stone to further education.

Our adult education programme offers courses for anyone interested in engaging in a new activity in an informal, social environment, availing of a second chance in education, or updating your skills in order to return to the workforce

All courses are awarded by QQI

  • Healthcare support / Nursing Studies Level 5
    • Courses are offered subject to minimum number of applicants
    • Modules may be completed over 1 year full time or 2 years part-time.
    • Courses may be used as stepping stones for entry to third level courses in related disciplines or progression through the National Framework of Qualifications

Our Healthcare Support / Nursing Studies course offers a comprehensive preparation for a career as a Health Care Assistant or a stepping stone towards a career as a Nurse.  We aim to equip the learner with the academic knowledge and practical skills essential for working in the healthcare sector.  Graduates from our programs will be qualified to work in hospitals, nursing homes, and community based practices or as home helpers.  They may also choose to pursue further 3rd level studies in related disciplines.

All courses are awarded by QQI

Adults are invited to participate on any of the courses and may choose to do all or a few of the modules on offer. 

Some learners participate in just 1 or 2, perhaps to gain or update computer skills.

Our adult students also enjoy ‘getting out of the house’ and the social side of adult education.

They enjoy being a part of our school community.  

We welcome all ages.

All are welcome
