Health and Physical Activity Level 6

Posted on August 14, 2018
Health and Physical Activity Level 6 is an innovative programme designed to immerse the learner in an environment of health awareness conducive to academic excellence. Students are schooled in the principles of best-practice across a broad spectrum of modules related to healthcare, fitness and physical activity.

This course aims to address potential future skills shortages arising from the addition of Physical Education to the Leaving Cert Curriculum with new progression routes available to third level. 

This course has a partnership with Rugby Academy Ireland and the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). Participants will also be qualified as gym instructors upon completion of the course. 

Students can apply directly from Leaving Cert to study this one year course at Coláiste Íde. This is the only direct entry course of its kind in the country.
