I completed the Healthcare Support course in Skibbereen and loved my time there. In the college there was a very welcoming atmosphere and I felt supported throughout my time there. While there was a lot of work to be done there was also a very homely atmosphere and a genuine understanding and flexibility that I found encouraging.
The key to any course is the tutors and our tutors were second to none. They put in as much work as any of the students over the course of the year. They were always available, supportive and encouraging with a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. I still call on the advice given to me by my tutors as I go about my work which is a testament to how practical and relevant the course is.

The work experience element of the course was hugely beneficial and have me a great insight into the job of a healthcare assistant. i have no doubt the experience i gained while on work experience was central to me securing my present employment in Bantry General Hospital where i work as a care assistant

My year in Skibbereen was a great learning experience for me. It was over 25 years since I had left education and the thoughts of assignments, researching and studying was all a bit daunting. However, the support and encouragement always available from the course tutors soon took away any fears I had about returning to education.
The theory and practical aspects of the course, along with the emphasis to develop as a healthcare assistant with a holistic approach to care is so beneficial. The modules covered provided the foundation to help me develop the skills and knowledge necessary  to feel competent, confident and employable within a healthcare setting. The work i have got as a result of having this qualification is proving to be so rewarding. I feel what i have learned is helping me to treat those who need care in an empathetic and correct way.
