Why Study with The Open Training College
Why Study with Us
Who we are
The Open Training College is a part of St. Michael’s House, Dublin. We are a not-for-profit organisation, funded through student fees, project work and consultancy.
What we do
We provide education and learning opportunities for people working in the disability, voluntary and not-for-profit sectors, covering:
- Applied Management
- Social Studies
- Supported Employment
We also provide a range of shorter, professional development courses.
How we do it
Our approach allows those working full time to remain in their job while enjoying the benefits of supported study. We do this using the Supported Open Learning Model and the Partnership Approach. The Supported Open Learning Model combines learning materials and methods to make it easier for students to study in their own time. The Partnership Approach is the agreement between students, agencies and employers that ensures students get all the support they need while studying.
