Working in the education sector is an important job which comes with significant responsibilities. Learners on this course, will become part of increasingly multi skilled
teams in the workplace.
We will equip our graduates to be able to work effectively in contemporary educational contexts and will qualify graduates to work in primary

This innovative programme is further designed to enable SNAs across primary and post-primary sectors to integrate Inclusive Practice into their working environments.
Competencies in areas such as inclusive practice are becoming increasingly important for schools to maintain a content and productive environment. This programme equips
graduates to lead, integrate and promote inclusive practice as part of their SNA duties.
Certain semesters of this course are taken in common with other courses.
