New Level 5 Certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice
Our new 2 year certificate course in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice is now aligned to Level 5 on the National Framework of Qualifications. This course has just been accredited by the University Council of Trinity College Dublin. This means that students will now, for the first time, receive a formal Level 5 award, upon graduating. When TCPID students graduate they will now have a formally recognised NFQ qualification which will enable them to engage with the world of work.
The new curriculum offers students a high academic standard of learning. The course objective is to realise the full potential of the students with intellectual disabilities. It will help to develop a broad range of skills across a comprehensive curriculum, including preparing graduates to work in diverse employment settings. This reconceptualised course is rooted in evidence-based research and aims to provide students with the independent living skills needed to become full participants in Irish society.
