Kinsale College Graduation Ceremony took place on Thursday 11th May in Saile and over 700 people attended. Alison Canivan Model, blogger and life style coach was the guest speaker on the night, and who described the energy in the room as “electric”. Alison gave an honest account of her own life struggles and urged the students to follow their dreams . Cllr Gillian Coughlan and Cllr Kevin Murphy were among the attendants on the night .
Liz Moynihan, Director of Kinsale College outlined the unique provision offered by the College in its wide range of courses. The forging of links with local and regional employers who offer valuable work experience options is foundational to this endeavour and surely sows the seeds for wide-ranging entrepreneurial ventures for the graduates of Kinsale College once in the workforce.
Students graduated from Level 5 & 6 courses in Healthcare, Childcare, Office Administration, Business, Horticulture, Art, Multimedia, TV & Film production, Drama, Outdoor Education and Professional cookery.
The college offers students the most up-to-date, relevant and bespoke career guidance advice. Kinsale College ensures that course offering complements labour market demands locally, regionally and nationally while being recognised by third level colleges as a sound basis for the pursuit of disciplines at undergraduate and future post graduates levels.
SOLAS, in recently observing the practice in Kinsale College in relation to entrepreneurship education provision, has decided to include the College as a case study on ‘best practice FE College’ in their upcoming report on Further Education provision in Ireland.
The College has only just begun in terms of driving and developing their unique ethos and excellence as a Centre of Learning. Possibilities for future development are boundless.
