Someone who wants to be where I am today shall need bucket loads of ambition and not be afraid of hard work. They will need to not be afraid of starting at the very bottom of that big high ladder but at the same time have the eagerness and determination to get to the top of that ladder because the opportunities are there.
Education is very important. It may only seem like a silly piece of paper but it's that Cert, Diploma or Degree that gets you that job and not the man/woman beside you.
The one thing that is vital in not alone this job, but any job, and alot of people don't seem to have it, is common sense. It's something so simple but really important. if you have no cop-on then nobody wants to know you.

A word of Welcome to Coláiste Íde College of Further Education.
It is always a difficult decision to know what area of study one wishes to pursue after completing one's full-time education. It is even more difficult, if having left full-time education many years ago to make that decision to return again and to take up where one left off. Coming up to the Leaving Certificate we are presented with so much choice and pressure to make a correct lifetime choice that it is difficult, if not impossible, to know what is the correct option to chose.
Post Leaving Certificate courses have been developed with a view to providing students with options to study in their areas of interest and to either pursue those interests in Higher Education or to move directly to the workplace. They also provide mature students with a route that enables them to avail of a second chance education system that allows for the acquiring of new skills and re-acquaintance with skills acquired at an earlier stage in life.
The system of assessment used by the QQI Accreditation system enables students to be assessed on a continual basis rather than solely on an end of year examination which can give a more accurate reflection of a student's work and results.
Coláiste Íde has been providing courses at this level since the mid 1970's and has developed a reputation for delivering effective and relevant career related courses. Over the years, students have achieved successfully achieved what they have come to the college to study and have moved on directly into employment or on to Higher Education Institutions.
