Why us?

The Institute maintains excellent relationships with many employers. Local and national employers from time to time inform us of job vacancies and these details are passed on to the Department Heads and are posted on the Careers Notice Board. Work Experience is an integral part of most courses in the Institute and learners are given advice on preparing for work experience. In addition learners will receive help in preparing Curriculum Vitae and interview techniques.

The Institute encourages learners to participate fully in the Students’ Union. Learners from each department elect representatives to this Union. The Union meets regularly to discuss issues related to learners needs. The Management Team regularly meets with the Students’ Union and values its contribution to the Institute.

The Institute will provide, on request, a list of accommodation offered locally to learners. The Institute does not endorse any such accommodation listed but learners may find it useful. All arrangements are between the provider and the learner.

The Institute endeavours to ensure that appropriate facilities and services are available to allow full access and participation for all learners as far as is practical and having regard to the resources available to the Institute.

The Institute provides professional Adult Career Guidance and a confidential Counselling service to all learners. The Guidance Counsellor provides advice on career and education options. The Guidance Counsellor is also available to help with other issues which arise all too often in the stressful world of today.
