Going to college can be daunting for your son and daughter. Here at Monaghan Institute, we pride ourselves in fostering your child’s academic goals and preparing them for further education in ITs/Universities or for their chosen career. Studying with us presents an opportunity for your son or daughter to:
- Improve career prospects
- Increase earning potential
- Develop key skills
- Gain independence
- Make friends for life
Research shows that employers are looking to recruit young people with a good knowledge base, sound communication skills, and the ability to work with others, analyse problems and think for themselves. Our courses are designed to give our graduates a head start in all of these.
One of the biggest changes between school and college is the way students work. Being able to take responsibility for individual learning is something that is quite different to the structure of school with emphasis on time management and working outside of class hours, which can be both daunting and very rewarding. Our courses will help your son and daughter in making this transition.
Tips for parents
