Templemore College – Expanding Horizons

Templemore College has, for many years now, successfully prepared large numbers of students to undertake work experience placements abroad. This year 15 of our graduate students are traveling to Spain and France for three-weeks in June to gain valuable work experience in their chosen careers.

Conscious of increasing globalisation of all industry sectors, the college has for many years been an accredited centre for the EU Leonardo Da Vinci Programme. This EU-funded programme aims to increase the employability and language skills of European students by exchanging good practices regarding the vocational training and learning needs across all industry sectors.

And the good news for the future is that Templemore College is hopeful of receiving continued funding under the new Erasmus Plus programme, to send more of its students to work overseas in the coming year.

So, if you are a school leaver or mature student interested in working in a challenging industry offering worldwide employment options then Templemore College provides such opportunities. We offer fulltime one-year courses in a wide variety of industry sectors, from IT and Networks, Social Studies, Business, Security, Legal Studies, Childcare, to Media Studies, and many more, beginning in September 2014.  Full details are available by phoning 0504-31007 or online at www.tcfe.ie
