What are the expected qualifications for someone working in the non-profit/human services sector today?

What are the choices open to you regarding blended learning? What is it exactly?

What options are available to you on your doorstep?


These are just a few of the questions that Raymond Watson, Course Director at the Open Training College, will be answering to those attending the Open Information events in Galway on June 29th (and in Cork on June 30th).


Raymond will also be announcing the new regional timetable for the BA in Applied Social Studies (Disability) that launches in September 2010. The new timetable highlights the amount of skills workshops now available to students around the country in Galway, Dublin and Cork.


Please feel free to come along and enjoy some discussions around the current options open to you in the West of Ireland regarding Applied Social Studies and Applied Management courses.



The Open Training College is a division of St. Michael’s House established in 1992 in response to a need to provide professional education and training programmes to staff working in services for people with a disability. We have been steadily growing our courses and reputation since that time and now are a well respected, well established academic institute of excellence in our field. Recently, we have moved to providing management programmes to degree level to the wider non-profit sector – a move that was informed by extensive consultation with stakeholders from these sectors.


Over 2,800 students from 125 human services agencies across Ireland and Europe have earned accreditation on Open Training College courses. Would you like to join them? Please join us in Galway or Cork and take the first step to earning a professional, accredited qualification specific to the non-profit/human services sector.
