Post Leaving Cert (PLC) courses, TETB

Post Leaving Certificate (PLC) courses are full-time programmes for young people who have completed their Leaving Certificate and adults returning to education. The courses develop technical and practical skills for an industry recognised qualification. They also offer an alternative route to higher education and give an opportunity to try out a subject of interest.

A wide range of disciplines are covered including: Business; Theatre and Stage; Art craft and design; Tourism; Healthcare; Childcare and Community care; Hairdressing and Beauty Care, and many more.

The courses last one to two years and lead to qualifications at QQI Levels 5 or 6.

Most of the PLC courses are provided by the Tipperary Education and Training Board (TETB) at PLC Centres around the county.
