Welcome to Ireland’s biggest and most
progressive provider of courses in the further and higher
education sectors. Established in the late 1990’s as a
distance learning college we set out to become the most
professional of course providers and now pride ourselves on
the variety of learning formats we offer our students.
We deliver courses by:
- Distance learning
- Attendance (classroom based) learning
- Blended learning (a combination of attendance
learning and either distance or eLearning).
Over the years we sought out and recruited the best
course writers and tutors and continue this process in
what is a relentless pursuit of excellence. All these
years of leadership and creativity has resulted in
top-class courses that were designed and produced by
experts in their fields and the process of up-dating
course material is continuous while new subjects are
added to our Prospectus on a continuing basis to give
up-to-date information and more and more choice. We have
helped many thousands of people in all parts of the
world to achieve internationally recognised
qualifications and so realise their goals and career
courses also offer you the opportunity to pursue interests and
acquire valuable new skills.
Our courses represent terrific value for money just compare
our prices with other course providers. You might well ask
how can we offer such quality courses at such competitive
prices in addition to our special offer of 2 courses for the
price of 1.
The reason is quite simple. We have our own
courses written for us and we do not resell courses from
the UK or elsewhere on an agency basis.

For the duration of a course there are exercises and
activities to be completed - it is very important you

With most of the learning formats you progress at a

Because we are the No 1 independent education and
training college in Ireland we are regularly contacted
by overseas organisations either seeking an affiliation
with us or offering a service to support our
training/programmes. We have a formal working
relationship with a number of international
organisations. One of these is of particular relevance
to what we do and offer our students:
leaders in the provision of Management/Leadership
competencies tests and we include such a test with all our
courses that contain a business/management element.
This test has to be taken on line and
the results will be sent directly to each student by email
usually within 3/4 working days.
The test will allow you to assess your own performance
against 16 key management/leader competencies - such as
customer focus, decision making, creativity and team working
- which are valued by employers and which are very important
for effective performance as a manager or team leader. There
is one test for managers in the public sector and a separate
test for all other managers. Depending on which version
chosen, your performance is benchmarked either against
15,000 or so managers in the database or against public
sector managers only.
In summary, this unique test will show you what to stop
doing (or do less of) and what to start doing (or do more
of) in order to become more effective in your current
role/activity. In effect, you are told what you need to do
to become a more effective manager and team leader and most
important of all, how to do it.
All our students have the option to take this revealing
test for an additional cost of €25.00.
The test asks questions to determine:
- Are you a 'Take-Charge' type?
- Are you a manipulative person?
- Are you a real friend when the going gets rough?
- How popular are you?
- Could you be your own boss?
- What’s your leadership potential?
The objective is not only to help you achieve greater
personal and professional success – but to show you how to
get what you really want out of life.

In the Ireland of today, learning new
skills and increasing knowledge is no longer an option:
it is essential in order to achieve success in any given
career. By acquiring these skills and knowledge, anyone
can greatly increase their opportunities whether they
are looking for a career start, seeking a new career,
anxious to earn extra income, keen to start their own
business venture or interested in working from home.
Blended learning is the modern, professional way to
develop your potential. It is convenient, flexible,
efficient and extremely cost effective with minimum
commuting delays and hence travelling or accommodation
costs to pay. You choose what subject you want to study
and you are, therefore, not restricted to accepting what
you are offered by your local or nearby educational
institution. You make your own deadlines and you can
start when it suits you, taking time out if the need
arises. You will receive all the support and
encouragement you need and this will help keep you
interested and motivated for the duration.
To acquire new skills and knowledge is to give
yourself greater ability, confidence and authority as
well as vastly increased opportunities.
Our study programmes are
- those who are seeking a career change,
- those who wish to widen their career opportunities,
- those who wish to set-up their own business
- employees wishing to enhance their skills
- line managers in companies
- owners/managers of small businesses.
