It’s Your Choice – The SCFE Experience

Upcoming OPEN DAY 20th November 10am to 2pm

Our OPEN DAY is the one to look forward to on Wednesday  20th November 2019 from 10am to 2pm. 

There will be a range of presentations, demonstrations and exhibitions and college staff and students will be on hand to answer any queries. 

All courses are recognised for the SUSI Grant and Higher Education Authority (HEA) fund for learners with learning difficulties.

The college, located within walking distance from Dun Laoghaire, is well served by public transport and free secure parking is available to students. 

For over 50 years, Sallynoggin College of Further Education has been steadily building a well deserved reputation as a centre of excellence in the area of Further Education. 

SCFE College has a truly diverse range of courses on offer, including our newly introduced courses Pre University Primary and Post Primary Teacher Training, Inclusive Education and Training including Disability Studies and Special Needs Assistant, Yoga and Pilates Teacher Training and Musical Theatre and Dance. Choose what’s right for you, and the staff of Sallynoggin College will be there to help and support you on every step of your journey.  

In the ever changing world of learning and work, at SCFE we’ve made it our business to keep moving too, ensuring that all our courses are at the cutting-edge of industry and employment demands. Our determination to stay ahead is paying dividends, as evidenced by the success of many of our former students. 

With the introduction of PE as a Leaving Certificate subject, this is a perfect time to check out some of the many success stories from former SCFE famous Fitness and Personal Training students. 

Former Sports, Fitness Instruction and Personal Training students Aine O’Gorman has had a fantastic international football career having played for 12 years at senior International level, with 100 Caps and 13 goals for Ireland. 

Stephen Foley is a former Aston Villa footballer and is currently doing his teaching practice back where he started, in SCFE as part of his Degree in Education and Training (DCU). Both of these super athletes are also successful Personal Trainers.

Erasmus+ Enhancing the student experience

SCFE recognises the importance of valuable work experience and the potential of the Erasmus+ programme to enhance the learning for all. 

This year for the first time selected students on the Advanced Hospitality, Travel & Event Management course will complete 3 weeks of work experience in Tenerife, whilst selected students on the Advanced Early Childhood Education and Care course will travel to Norway for their placement.  

SCFE hosted a number of European teachers in 2018, our own staff visited Norway in 2019 and it is our goal to further develop and enhance these partnerships over the coming years.

Transition Year Students

We also welcome Transition Year students who are interested in completing their work experience under the expert supervision of our highly trained staff in our departments. 

This is a unique opportunity to experience professional level training, along with the exciting buzz of student life in Sallynoggin College.

What our students are saying about SCFE

Sallynoggin College is a Gem of a place. Upon entering the door, you are greeted with a welcoming vibe. I found the teachers to be extremely supportive, encouraging, knowledgeable and could not do enough for each student. 

Trips were organized for us and different learning strategies were applied. I gained valuable skills during my time there as well as making lifelong friends.

Sarah O’Donovan, Early Childhood Care and Education

Having graduated from SCFE, I got my first interview as a Passenger Services agent job with   Swissport through SCFE and after 2 years there I applied for a Cabin Crew job in Aer Lingus.  

My two years in Sallynoggin College were very special to me and the teachers were extremely helpful and invested in making sure that we were well prepared for whatever path you wanted to follow after graduation.
