Recent initiatives including free parking at weekends until 18 December for town centre shoppers at the Colleges Omagh campus and the popular free breakfast club for students across all campuses have demonstrated the College’s commitment to supporting the community with the growing cost of living.

With a wide range of part-time subjects and levels on offer at our campuses in Dungannon Enniskillen and Omagh such as aromatherapy, lash and brow treatments, barista skills, cyber security, bookkeeping, Spanish, food and safety hygiene, cooking on a budget, there’s something for everyone.

Celine McCartan Chief Executive at South West College said:

“The local community is at the heart of everything we do at South West College and we are continually focusing our efforts to ensure that we provide courses that meet the needs of both students and employers living in our towns and villages across the South West region.

“We understand that one of the biggest barriers to studying part time can be the cost implications. We hope that making this offer of reduced fees will encourage those in our communities who may have been out of education for some time, or who simply wish to update their skills will avail of this offer to enhance their career prospects and fulfil their lifelong learning ambitions.”

The benefits of part-time study have helped many adults gain valuable training to help get promoted, retrain in a new career, and get back into education if they feel they have missed out previously at an earlier point in life. The College has also developed a range of career specific qualifications to help local people reach their employment potential.

There are many reasons why people are drawn to part-time study. For many students it’s a way to study without giving up a job or sacrificing other commitments; for others it’s a way to gain new qualifications in the field they’re already working in and instantly apply them to the workplace.

Part time courses can galvanise the skills you already have, make you stand out from the crowd when it comes to new opportunities and career enhancement, or simply give you a new sense of impetuous in your everyday work.

Whatever your ambitions, as you look towards 2023, consider South West College the perfect place to Invest in You. To find out more or to apply for a discounted part-time course, please see below.
