– A new gateway to careers for young people

FDMC is now funded by The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) to provide GATEWAY for our students.  Gateway delivers hands-on practical learning that leads to nationally recognised qualifications.  It opens a new pathway from school to the world of work.  Gateway helps students build skills for employment, working in real workplaces on real tasks.  It gives opportunities to try out potential careers and build links to Industry Training Organisations, modern apprenticeships and workplaces.

In 2012 Gateway will be run in conjunction with our successful Career Pathways Programme (CPP).  Mrs Lauren O'Reilly is the CPP/Gateway Co-ordinator at the College and Mrs Karen Maclean is the Gateway Administrator.
