Course Description



This one-year course will aim to prepare participants for work with people in a social care, community development or residential setting. The care worker needs the social, communication and caring skills to work with individuals and groups.

This course is ideal for school leavers and experienced mature persons seeking a formal education. A Year 2 QQI Level 6 certificate is also available in Dunboyne College of Further Education.
