A new year, a new career?
Consider your options at IT, Tralee
On Wednesday January 14th and Thursday January 15th the Institute of Technology, Tralee will host information evenings in Tralee and Killarney where details of both part-time and full-time programmes commencing in January and February of this year will be provided.
The Institute intends to deliver a number of programmes on campus in Tralee and also on an outreach basis in Killarney. Courses on offer vary from minor to major awards across a broad range of disciplines from business to science and engineering. Courses will also be available on a part-time and full-time basis.
The information evenings, which commence at 7pm, will afford potential students the opportunity to meet with faculty members who will provide details of the programmes on offer, as well as members of the ITT student services support team who will provide interested candidates with details of the admissions process and support services available to those returning to education.
Current mature students at the Institute will also speak about their experiences at the ITT and their third level journey to date. The Tralee session will take place in the Business and IT Building at the IT, Tralee North Campus, with the Killarney session taking place at the Malton Hotel.
According to IT, Tralee President Michael Carmody, â¿¿in the current economic climate, there is an increased demand from with those within employment and those seeking a career change for flexible training programmes which provide up-skilling opportunities with the long-term benefit of enhancing a persons employment prospects. The IT Tralee will offer a range of programmes in Tralee and Killarney with the overall aim of meeting the individual educational requirements of the learner as well as responding to the training requirements of employers in the region. I would encourage interested parties to attend the information sessions where they will have the opportunity to discuss career options and course choices with institute personnelâ¿.
The IT, Tralee is also a member of the Shannon Consortium, a collaborative partnership between UL, LIT, MIC and the ITT. The Consortium has been allocated significant funding by the HEA under the Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF). As part of activities proposed under SIF the IT, Tralee will lead the development of a Regional Learning Centre in Killarney for the provision of third level courses with plans also underway to open a third level training centre in Ennis.
