University Programmes in Croom

Croom Community Enterprise Centre (CCEC) Launches Two Accredited University Programmes in Collaboration with Technological University of the Shannon Midland Midwest and

The two programmes offered through this collaboration are the Certificate in Business in Entrepreneurship and the Bachelor of Business degree programme. The Certificate in Business in Entrepreneurship aims to empower and support potential entrepreneurs, start-ups, and local businesses, while the Bachelor of Business degree programme seeks to increase access to higher education for adult learners.

One of the unique features of these programmes is the inclusion of industry expert lecturers who bring extensive experience and real-life examples into the classroom. This approach bridges the gap between theoretical learning and practical application, enabling participants to apply their newfound knowledge in the workplace and real-life scenarios.

The Learning in the Hubs initiative addresses two major obstacles commonly faced by adult learners: financial constraints and the challenge of balancing study with family or work obligations. By offering flexible learning options, Croom Enterprise Centre ensures that individuals can access the programmes in a way that suits their busy lifestyles. This flexibility is especially valuable for those seeking employment, as it enhances their professional development and employability.

"We believe that now is the perfect time to embrace lifelong learning," said Padraig Broderick, Chair of CCEC. "These programmes, delivered fully in Croom Enterprise Centre, provide brilliant opportunities in terms of support and flexibility. Returning to education can significantly boost someone's confidence to re-enter the workforce, making it a crucial step for career progression."

Furthermore, TUS collaborates with graduates to offer additional progression opportunities upon completion of a course, encouraging individuals to embark on a path of lifelong learning. TUS currently offers courses ranging from certificate to Masters level both online and in person at one of their six campus locations across the country. This emphasis on continuous education is particularly relevant in today's competitive employment landscape.

Croom Community Enterprise Centre, TUS, and are excited to join forces to make lifelong learning more accessible and impactful for individuals throughout Ireland. With the support of this initiative, adult learners can pursue higher education and acquire the skills needed for personal and professional growth.
