College / Further Education
DLCTC has developed links with all of the local PLC colleges. Trainees are brought to the various open days which happen in January / February time and will then be assisted with the application process for college from completing the application forms to preparing for the interview. Help is also provided in accessing financial supports for college.
The local colleges (Sallynoggin College of Further Education, Blackrock Further Education Institute and Dun Laoghaire Further Education Institute) offer a huge range of programmes which trainees of DLCTC have accessed over the years. Trainees have also progressed to Bray Institute of Further Education (BIFE), Dundrum College of Further Education and a range of other colleges both nearby and further afield. Assistance in relation to accessing further education is provided within the centre as part of the Advocate programme.
Trainees can also consider pursuing further training in Loughlinstown Training Centre which offers a range of vocational courses at QQI Level 5.
