University College Cork is hoping to offer a Diploma in Youth and Community Work at Knockanrawley Resource centre in Tipperary town. The course is now seeking applicants and management at Knockanrawley Resource Centre hope to run the Diploma course in the near future if there is enough interest locally.
The 2-year course has fees of €990 per year but a number of Social Inclusion Grants and Department of Social Protection grants are available. The course is considered to offer excellent career prospects and interested parties are encouraged to contact Therese Normile at Knockanrawley (telephone 062 52688). Applicants do not have to live in Tipperary town to avail of the course.
The two-year course is part-time, one evening per week with some Saturday classes. The delivery of the programme will be blended, some in-person at the Knockanrawley Resource Centre, some classes will be online, and some Saturday classes will be delivered at the UCC Campus.
UCC wants students studying at Outreach Centres to have the opportunity to attend UCC occasionally so that they can feel the benefit of being a UCC student. Part-time students have access to all the resources available to full-time students, including the library, Skills Centre, Clubs and Societies, Mature Student Office and the Mardyke Sports Arena, to name but a few.
