There was a time, not too long ago, when your Leaving Certificate grades and the points that they translated into determined whether you would become a third level student for three or four years, go directly into employment, do a secretarial course, join the army or visit your local FAS office. Thanks to the Post Leaving Certificate/ Further Education Courses things suddenly got a whole lot better for those leaving secondary education or those wishing to return to education.
Today many view the PLC route as their alternative stepping stone into Higher Education Institutes, should they wish to avail of this option, whilst others see it as â€˜not going in the front doorâ€™ but â€˜the back doorâ€™ of higher education providers. At the end of your studies in a higher education provider it doesnâ€™t really matter what door you came in through but the qualification in your hand!
Who is the PLC route for? Many argue it is for those who are more practical than academic. Not necessarily so anymore! As year after year, many entrants into the PLC sector of education also have the offer of CAO courses. Some PLC students donâ€™t want to commit to a 3 or 4 year course in a third level institution until they have actually experienced or studied a similar Level 5 or 6 certificate course. PLC courses assist students in making a more informed decision prior to further commitment.
