Certification Day at City Hall
Learners from the centre assembled at City Hall to receive their Fetac Certification from the Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr. Tim Brosnan in April. The day represented an opportunity to congratulate the students involved and acknowledge the hard work they have put in. A great many learners were recipients of full awards at levels 3 and 4, and can be rightly proud of their achievements.
Several former trainees who have gone on to do degree courses at UCC, CIT, and elsewhere were also invited and spoke to those present about the career paths they have taken. We would like to thank Tara Daly, Ger Nyhan, Jonathon Wyse, Joanne Coakley and Kajetan Soltys for coming back to see us and talk about their experiences. Kajetan accepted the certification which qualifies him as a Financial Advisor which he achieved through the help of the Customised Training scheme while John O’Donovan accepted his President’s Award – a national award scheme available through the Centre.
The Centre Manager, Maria Lago O’Sullivan and Staff were delighted to see so many present from the Board of Management, Solas and the ETB. We would like to thank the following for taking the time to join us and for their ongoing support for the work carried out at the centre; John Clohessy (Chairperson of the Board), Micheal Hayes (Secretary) Noel Bridgeman (Treasurer), Mary Williams (Board Member), Helen Courtney (Board Member), Hazel McCarthy (Board Member) Liz Stack (Senior Development Officer, Cork Training Centre), and Enda McWeeney, (Cork Area Training Manager).
