Protecting and Caring

health care

The health sector is seeing huge changes in Ireland of late and with this reform has come an increasing demand for roles in particular areas

Some of these areas are in Occupational Therapy Assistant, Speech and Language Therapy Assistant and also Physiotherapy Assistant, these courses can be studied on a full time or via a blended learning study option (blended learning is a mixture of online learning with workshops). If you didn't want to study the full course or already may have some of the modules covered we offer students the option of studying the Theory and Practice modules only of these courses.

As the demand for college places is at an all time high our Nursing Studies course offers a great solution for anyone who didn't get the required CAO points for Nursing. This course offers a Major award in Nursing Studies and may be used as an alternative entry route into 3rd Level colleges once academic prerequisites are met.

The courses can be studied Full Time or Part Time to suit individual needs and are all accredited by FETAC.

Please browse through our courses portfolio and if you require any further information one of our dedicated course advisor Carol Carberry would be delighted to talk you through them in more detail; tel 01 8920007 or email her on carol.carberry@portobelloinstitute.ie
