Principal’s Message

Principal PhotoCityNorth College of Further Education is part of the Cork Education and Training Board and is situated in Hollyhill alongside Terence MacSwiney Community College. The post-primary school was established just over 30 years ago with the Further Education College, formerly known as Northside Campus, developing in the past 10 years.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to offering the highest standards of education in a supportive, friendly, and inclusive environment where each student is encouraged and facilitated to develop their potential and achieve their goals.

The diverse student profile, characteristic of Further Education, has school leavers working side by side with young parents and adults taking advantage of second-chance education. All enjoy and benefit from the sharing of their respective life experiences, and our classes are the richer for them.

We offer a variety of awards at QQI Level 5 that provide participants with the knowledge and skills to enter the job market immediately or to progress to further studies.

We are continuously developing links with local employers who are keen to engage with our students by providing information sessions and facilitating company visits.

For those students interested in pursuing a degree course, we have established links with the Cork Institute of Technology through the Cork Colleges Progression Scheme, and with University College Cork. A number of places are reserved for students who achieve specific targets in their Level 5 awards.

Browse through our course links and email or phone the College if you have an enquiry.

We would be delighted to hear from you!
