Further Education options are a wonderful part of Irelands’ educational landscape. PLC courses are one such option in the Further Education and Training Sector (FET). There are a huge variety of PLC courses which offer independent qualifications and can be very attractive to those who are not yet ready to commit to a four-year course.
These courses offer great progression links to higher education courses, apprenticeships and directly into employment. They provide opportunities for school leavers and learners of all ages to consolidate their learning in their area of specific interest. Most PLC courses are QQI accredited, or may be accredited by a internationally recognised UK body (e.g. City & Guilds, ITEC etc.)
