Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Communication and team skills are probably the most important aspect overlooked.

In energy management, it is not I that saves the energy, but often it is folks on the ground using the equipment.

It is the energy managers job to educate by communication, the importance of doing the right things, savings then come as a result.

Creative?
Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

About Us

Education in this country is currently experiencing great change. We in Kinsale College are constantly reviewing our approach to the teaching of learners to meet these challenges.

We are continuously developing and adapting our courses to reflect changes in work practices across industry and our links with businesses in Kinsale and the wider country.

We welcome learners of all ages, nationalities and abilities including mature students who wish to return to education and training.

We are justifiably proud of our learners and the results they have achieved in the past, which has enabled them to follow further courses of study in Universities at home and abroad. In addition to this many have progressed to Institutes of Technology and other Colleges of Further Education through the Higher Education Links Scheme and Cork Colleges Progression links.

You can contact the college to get more detailed information on any course you are interested in.

Choose wisely and remember that we are on hand to offer any further advice. This is your new beginning – your journey.
