SKILLVEC at Dún Laoghaire VEC

Dún Laoghaire VEC currently runs SKILLVEC Programmes at Level 3/4 and at Level 5.

Level 3/4

The Level 3 Programme is delivered in the Adult Learning Centre, based in Sallynoggin.  It is aimed at learners who may be returning to education after many years absence and who may need additional supports to make a success of their programme. These learners may begin with a course at Level 3 or 4 and later progress to the level 5 or 6 course.

Level 5

The Level 5 award consists of 8 modules of study.  Each module contains 20 hours of class contact.  The learners are required to attend classroom based sessions in a local VEC (or OTC/UCD for specific modules).  Each module or subject is assessed on a range of learning outcomes.

All learners undertake 5 core modules and 3 elective modules based on their job/role.
