Kinsale College Graduation Ceremony took place on Thursday, May 12 in Acton’s hotel with over 500 people present on the night.

Dr Eddie Murphy from RTE Operation transformation was the guest speaker and described the energy in the room as “electric”. Dr Eddie gave an uplifting presentation on becoming your real self, a topic that is very close to the ethos at Kinsale College.

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.

Ted Owens, CEO of Cork ETB, was present on the night. He addressed the large crowd stating how impressed he was with the enthusiasm, energy and spirit of the college graduates. Kinsale College, a centre of excellence in Quality, achieved the Top Quality rating of ‘5’, verifying their belief that they are to the fore in terms of Quality of education provision to their students.

On the night, a scholarship to progress to Third Level Education was awarded by Mr. Liam Edwards representing the Good Food Circle to Sonia O’Keeffe who excelled at her Professional Cookery course.

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.

Kinsale College is currently enrolling for September 2016.
