College Connect is a programme that aims to admit 400 students from specific target groups, who are under-represented in college, including:
➡️Lone parents and students from One-parent families
➡️Young people who have been in care of the state
➡️People with disabilities
➡️People from lower socio economic groups
➡️First time Mature students
➡️Further education award holders
College Connect is a new way to support people who are socially and economically disadvantaged. This is sometimes called ‘experiencing multiple marginalisation’. Instead of each college working separately to support these students, the four colleges will now work together.
To find out more of about the College Connect programme, sign up to their Webinar that is being held during County Kildare Social Inclusion Week.
