NOTS & TU Dublin confirm partnership for funding of the Higher Certificate in Professional Horticulture Practice
Drumshanbo – August 16th 2019
National Organic Training Skillnet have announced that they will be providing a 25% funding package for eligible students on the Higher Certificate in Science in Professional Horticulture Practice run by TU Dublin’s Blanchardstown Campus.
The 2-year, part-time course will be delivered via a hybrid system of online / distance learning classes and on-site learning. Year 1 and Year 2 students can avail of a 25% fee reduction by registering for the programme through National Organic Training Skillnet (NOTS). In real terms, this means that students can save a massive €655 on the full course price.
The full cost of the course is €2,625 per year. However, with NOTS funding, members will only pay the reduced fee of €1,970 payable directly to NOTS. Places and NOTS funding are limited, and enrolment is on a ‘first come, first served’ basis so we encourage you to register as soon as you can.
NOTS Network Manager Sean McGloin welcomed the initiative, and praised TU Dublin’s commitment to the horticulture industry:
“We are delighted to be working with TU Dublin to fund this course in order to benefit students and help them begin their journey in Horticulture. Horticulture is a rich and rewarding enterprise which will undoubtedly become more important amid a changing climate and increasing pressure on conventional agricultural systems.”
Students who are interested in enrolling in Year 1 or Year 2 should log on to https://nots.ie/sector/tu-dublin-courses/ to register for their place on the course. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or call 071 9640688 with any additional queries.
National Organic Training Skillnet is co-funded by Skillnet Ireland member companies. Skillnet Ireland is funded from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education and Skills.
