Welcome Message from Principal James Hardiman – September 2020

North Connaught College is renowned for its warm, friendly and supportive atmosphere. We congratulate our graduates from 2019-2020 who will be issued with their certificates in the coming weeks. We are looking forward to reopening our College, in line with HSE advice and Government directives, in time to welcome new and returning students for the 2020-2021 academic year.

As part of North Connaught College’s commitment to provide a safe return for staff and students, an aide and lead worker representative has been appointed with the responsibility of preparing classrooms, facilities, etc. During induction you will see what the site will look like, and you will also be informed of some of the changes we have made and the protocols that will be in place.

The College will always take our guidance from Government and HSE recommendations. We have compiled a COVID-19 link on the College website which includes our COVID-19 Response Plan. Reading this document will allow you to fully understand the care we are taking in ensuring our students are as safe as possible during the Covid-19 pandemic. We will update this document as necessary, responding to the situation as it changes. Together with this plan we have included the most up-to-date information and best advice and useful videos.

We welcome all off our learners to the College over the next few weeks as we prepare to commence classes on September 21st. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns and thank you for taking this part of your journey with us at North Connaught College.

Best regards,

Meet Our Students

North Connaught College offers courses from Beauty Therapy to Healthcare to Business and Warehousing/Security. But its main focus is the ‘student’ voice. It is about their journey. Where they are coming from. Why they decided to return to education. Why they choose North Connaught College. And where they hope to go after completing their studies with us. It also highlights the qualities and supports of the College and also the diverse range of learners, which we welcome.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more. >>
