Naturalist?
Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

About Us

As you walk through the front door of Pearse College of Further Education, you will notice a sculpture inscribed with the words:

“Education should foster, Education should Inspire.”

Since we began offering courses to adults in 1967 we have been motivated by these words of Padraig Pearse. We believe that if you take the first step of returning to education with us, then it is our responsibility to motivate, challenge and encourage you to take the next one to:

  • Start or restart your education
  • Start on the path to a career
  • Start a new stage of your life

Our courses are designed to prepare students for employment and third level education in an adult-friendly environment. In Pearse College, mature students returning to education mix with school leavers, teachers and students, working together to discover capabilities, explore possibilities and realise potential.

It is an exciting and inspirational place to learn, with a highly qualified, dedicated and caring staff, excellent facilities, a unique atmosphere and a proven track record.
