Empowerment through education

We provide people of all ages with pathways to learning, leadership and enterprise. An Cosán offers a variety of programmes in early years education and care, parenting, community, further and higher education. Through our Online Education programmes we bring our ethos beyond Jobstown to locations across the country through our Community Partners.

All our courses are taking place in line with government guidelines. Our Access courses are taking place face-to-face (with social distancing) in our Jobstown centre, our Further Education courses are taking place online or blended (some face-to-face classes and some online) while ALL our Higher Education programmes are taking place online.

Our seven Early Years Education and Care Centres remain open and our mentoring, tutoring, family support and counselling services are continuing to run, mostly face-to-face but with some online, depending on circumstances.
