“The staff ensure each and every student is supported along the way to achieve their full potential along with gaining confidence and still having fun. Staff take a real genuine interest in all students, bringing out the best in everyone.”
Anne O’Shea Clarke – (Graduate of Advanced Social Studies including Advocacy)
“As someone who dropped out of school and took a very different root with my education I was scared I wouldn’t be able to attend any college… My time in Sallynoggin was wonderful, I met many great people and really developed not only with my art but as a person… All of my tutors were extremely helpful and made my time there fantastic. I am so happy to continue my journey with my education, and I wouldn’t be able to do it without this course and college. I am so grateful to have studied here and I recommend it to anyone who is looking to progress and develop their art.”
Julia Rose Hinchey (Graduate of Art Craft and Design)
“Not only did this course teach me the skills needed to become a versatile performer through the means of acting, singing and dancing, I was also taught professional development skills that I will take with me as I progress with my education… This year was unlike any other and the supportive environment of the college, alongside the friends I have made doing this course made the challenges presented along the way much more achievable.”
Holly Campbell Fogarty (Graduate of Musical Theatre)
“I would highly recommend Sallynoggin College of Further Education for everybody. It is an inclusive College where everyone is most welcome and where students mix well and interact with each other… It’s not just a learning environment, it’s a community also and I really enjoyed my time there”.
