Adult Education at Carrigaline Community School has been an integral part of our community since 1982. We strive to provide a high quality education which caters for the diverse needs of our community. The school is a QQI-registered provider of education programmes leading to QQI certification in Childcare and Health Care Skills. We work closely with a number of local businesses and a variety of educational institutions to provide up-skilling and opportunities for further career development.

For Leaving Certificate students we offer the opportunity to study extra subjects such as Applied Maths, as well as providing an opportunity for evening study with exam and study skills. The school also offers a wide range of courses in health & fitness, cooking, languages, music and personal development. Our Adult Education team, together with an enthusiastic team of tutors relish the challenge of providing courses of quality and vision that reflect the needs of adult learners in a changing world. We are committed to working in partnership with our community and to further developing a centre of education and learning which reflects our collective needs and ambitions for our shared future. As a community, our school is ours to create, our learning is ours to define and our future is ours to live! Carpe Diem!
