You are very welcome to our Department of Lifelong Learning’s Evening and Flexible Learning Prospectus for the 2020/2021 academic year.
Athlone IT plays an integral role in educating and upskilling the people in the Midlands region. It is vital that our graduates are agile and adaptable, with the skills and competencies necessary to succeed in today’s fast-moving innovation economy and to ensure the continued growth and competitiveness of the Midlands region.
The Department of Lifelong Learning offers you the opportunity to consider engaging in a part-time and flexible programme of learning in Athlone Institute of Technology. Our programmes are designed to give you the skills, knowledge and competencies which you may require for your professional development and career progression.
All of our programmes are delivered using a blended learning approach. Teaching and learning are delivered online during the teaching week with a number of classroom face to face teaching sessions scheduled on Saturdays during each semester. You can balance work and other commitments and study at a pace that suits you. Our programmes are delivered by lecturers with current industry expertise and experience. This enrichens your learning experience. Our department staff are dedicated to ensuring that your educational journey with us, from registration to graduation is enjoyable, rewarding and memorable.
During the 2020/2021 academic year, Athlone IT is offering a broad range of programmes which are supported by the Springboard+ initiative. There are free and part-funded places, available on the programmes, to suit both employed and unemployed people. These programmes are industry-focused and will give participants opportunities to acquire new knowledge and skills.
I hope that you will find a programme that interests you and that we get the opportunity to share in your learning journey. We are committed to ensuring that each student can engage and succeed in their programme. We look forward to meeting you at our Information Evenings and answering any queries you may have.
I wish you continued success and hope to meet you in September as a student of Athlone IT and the Department of Lifelong Learning.
