“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.
The variety of modules offered allowed me to develop my skills in group work and work experience. The course taught me how to multi-task while focusing on my study and career goals. The course and tutors allowed me to realise my potential.
I am currently in my third year at Trinity College Dublin studying Social Work. The majority of modules I completed in ICFE are relevant to my present course and I’m on my way to achieving my career as a social worker.”
