Cork Training Centre (CTC) recently presented more than 450 certificates to learners graduating from across 23 training courses including Life Sciences, Beauty Therapy, I.T. Maintenance, Warehouse Operations, Security and Computer Literacy. Approximately 5000 people train, retrain or upskill each year at the Cork Training Centre either in its main Bishopstown campus , unique Biopharma facility in Carrigaline , or through its partner training provider network organisations around the city and county. Graduations are held twice a year.
“Cork Training Centre has been in existence, under different names, for more than 43 years. We help those people who are looking to develop their career, retrain or upskill. We have a wide variety of full time, evening and online training courses, with flexible course options to provide a practical route to employment for all,” said Enda McWeeney, Area Training Manager, Cork Training Centre.
CTC provides a wide range of training programmes including courses on information technology, business, beauty, health-care and manufacturing activities. These programmes assist people into employment and provide vital upskilling to ensure candidates have the best opportunities for career progression and employability.
Speaking at the graduation, Life Sciences Graduate Daniel Henderson commented: ‘Having come from a completely different industry background, I wanted to transition to the Pharmaceutical Sector. I retrained with the Cork Training Centre’s Life Science Manufacturing Operations course, which I found to be challenging and extremely rewarding. I am now working for Biomarin and it’s a dream come true for me.”
“We are delighted to present certificates to more than 450 learners this year. Their success in no small part due to the high quality teaching and the learning processes at CTC. Our staff always seek to encourage, promote and support learners to achieve their best, while utilising their individual abilities,” added Enda McWeeney.
“We are extremely proud of all of our learners and we wish them every success in the future,” he added.
