Healthcare environments are changing and healthcare workers need to develop and update their skills. This innovative course aims to build on existing knowledge and skills with a view to developing your existing role or to prepare you to work in a supervisory capacity or as a senior healthcare worker.
The supportive environment in Inchicore College along with the experience and knowledge of our healthcare teachers will help you to acquire new skills in areas such as human resources management, health promotion and conflict resolution. You will also extend your knowledge and practice experience with an emphasis on person-centered planning and care.

“I attended the ICFE Healthcare Supervisory Management course as a mature student. I found the tutors to be approachable and supportive. I built positive relationships with staff and peers and really engaged in the college community, which increased my self-confidence.
