Monaghan Institute Welcomes Back Business Studies Graduate

Claire Keenan is a past student of Monaghan Institute. After completing QQI Level 5 Business Studies and Office Administration, Claire decided to stay on for another year in Monaghan Institute to study QQI Level 6 Advanced IT & Business Management. The modules studied at Level 6 allowed Claire to advance in her IT and teamworking skills, which would be necessary for employment in a modern office environment.

Having to finish the final months of college online due to Covid-19, allowed Claire to further develop her IT skills.  At this time, Microsoft Teams was introduced for students to engage with tutors to complete their final college assessments. This experience has proven to be extremely beneficial in preparation for a more socially distant working environment.

During her studies, the practice interviews and presentations helped Claire build her confidence to where she felt comfortable applying for an administrative position and going for an interview with CMETB. Claire has now secured a full-time role in Monaghan Institute as a member of Training Services administration team and we wish her all the best for her future.

Monaghan Institute’s Business courses aims to equip both school leavers and mature applicants with the necessary business skills and a thorough knowledge of the computer application packages used in the modern office, as well as preparing learners for further study in related areas. It also suits learners who wish to defer their college place for a year, after completing their Leaving Certificate.

Applications for Monaghan Institute courses for Sept 2021 will open in early January 2021.
