Services to Learners in Sallynoggin College
Career Guidance/Counselling Service in SCFE
SCFE offers both a professional guidance service and a counselling service free of charge to all registered learners, who may also avail of advice on third level/CAO and UCAS (UK) application and progression. Advice and support are also available on the disability access route to education (DARE) and higher education access route (HEAR), and on how to apply for both these schemes.
In certain circumstances, some learners may need additional supports to enable them to benefit fully from their course. The Higher Education Authority (HEA) Fund for Students with Disabilities aims to assist students with disabilities and specific learning difficulties to participate in Further Education courses. Registered learners may apply for support under this fund, through the College, at or after course registration. Documentary evidence verifying the learner’s disability must be provided, enabling the College to submit an application to the Higher Education Authority (HEA). The support available to learners depends on the grant, if any, allocated by the HEA. Further information on the fund for students with disabilities is available on www.studentfinance.ie.
All learners in SCFE are afforded the opportunity to participate in a programme of work experience during their course of studies. This is an integral part of the learning experience, and can offer a springboard into future employment. The College has established excellent links with employers and as a result plays an important role in assisting learners to progress directly into employment.
SCFE Student Council
SCFE encourages learners to participate in the College Student Council (SC), which is elected annually to represent the interests of learners to management. The SC is also involved in organizing social events and activities throughout the year, as well as extensive fund-raising for charity. The SC plays a role in the annual election of learner representatives to the College Board of Management.
SCFE learners have an opportunity to participate in the mens’ and womens’ soccer and rugby teams, which compete successfully in inter-college leagues.
