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.
