Tallaght Community Council are the first sponsors in an innovative community outreach and education programme whereby they are donating Educate Credits to the community. Educate Credits are a reward for being proactive in the community and allow participants to gain free access to courses on the part-time programme in Institute of Technology Tallaght.
Earlier this year Tallaght Community Council organised a summer event called Tallafest. The event attracted over 5,000 people from the community to enjoy different events such as exhibitions, local bands playing, a nature walk & lecture, a history lecture, a fun dog show, a writers workshop, a fun cycle and so much more. Over 100 volunteers gave freely of their time and earned over 2,000 Educate Credits.
This equals 2 places on the part-time programme in Institute of Technology Tallaght enabling 2 people to study for 3 years up to degree level.
To celebrate the launch of this scheme Tallaght Community Council in conjunction with Institute of Technology Tallaght (ITT Dublin) and South Dublin County Council are offering 2 people from South Dublin County the chance to avail of the 2,000 Educate Credits giving them access to part-time study for up to 3 years. ITT Dublin offers a wide range of courses in accountancy, computing, science, humanities, engineering, management and marketing.
In order to be considered for this wonderful opportunity, each participant must write a 1000 word piece on “ How going to college will change my life “ and submit this along with your CV by 4.30pm Friday 13th September to
