Participation

PARTICIPATION IN PROGRAMMES

Students registering in the college are full-time students. Full participation in your course is a requirement and all courses involve elements of teamwork in which your contribution is necessary to your success on the course. Continuous assessment is an essential feature of all the college courses and this requires full participation. Courses are demanding and success is dependent upon commitment and hard work.

Every course/activity requires a commitment to attend all parts of the programme on offer fully and punctually. Any student unable to fulfil this commitment may be required to leave the course/activity.

Students who have been absent without satisfactory explanation for fifteen days will be deemed to have opted out of the course. In general a minimum of 75% attendance is required. Re- affirmation of enrolment can occur only with the permission of the principal

UNSATISFACTORY PARTICIPATION IN PROGRAMMES

The policy of the college is to address unsatisfactory attendance in consultation with the student.

PART-TIME JOBS

Students registering in the college are full time students. Courses are demanding and success is dependent upon commitment and hard work. Working long hours at part-time jobs can interfere with the quality of course work. More than 11 hours at a part time job is considered to be excessive.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Work Experience is an important part of many courses. The arrangements for different courses will vary but in general work experience will cover a block of 2 to 3 weeks. Students are encouraged to find their own work placement but assistance will be given by college staff if necessary. The work placement must be with an employer appropriate to the course. A minimum of 10 days’ work experience is required for QQI courses.
