Here's something of a No Brainer if you are unemployed for at least three months and are thinking of taking a course. The National College of Ireland is offering Free Fees for a number of courses:
- Certificate in Business Studies
- Certificate in Entrepreneurship
- Certificate in Web Technologies
- Higher Diploma in Web Technologies
The Web Technologies courses can be done full-time (day) or part-time (evening). See the NCI website for more details on each course, or contact the excellent Admissions Office on 1850 221 721.With the exception of the Certificate in Business Studies, you will need to have a degree to be eligible to register for the course. If you don't have a degree, note that NCI operates a Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPEL) scheme meaning applicants who do not meet the normal academic requirements may be considered based on relevant work and other experience.
The Web Technologies courses are brand new, and have generated a lot of interest and indeed some excitement. You don't have to have a technical qualification to be able to go on these courses, so if you think you would like to learn more about about the Web - this course could be for you.
