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.

North Connaught College opens opportunities with St.Angela’s College for teacher training

North Connaught College are delighted to engage with another educational institute within Sligo, St. Angela’s College. We wish to thank Dr. Taheny, President, for the opportunity which the Access to Post-Primary teaching (APT) will create for our learners. This is a pilot project which provides a direct entry route to initial teacher education from further education. This partnership will allow students from our Childcare programmes Level 5 and Level 6 not only the opportunity to pursue a career in second level teaching in the areas of Home Economics, Biology, Religious Education and Irish, but also the invaluable experience of taking part in Inreach and Outreach activities which are a unique feature of the ATP project.

North Connaught College as part of MSL ETB provides within its mission statement a vision where each individual is supported, respected as unique and where every effort is made to develop knowledge and skills appropriate to their needs. With this in mind we have a very strong and dedicated team including many supports such as career guidance and student/learner support. Read more >>
