Trinity bring enterprise programme to Cork

Wednesday, 20th February, 2019 5:02pm

Trinity College, Ireland’s top ranked university is coming to Cork.

The historic Dublin-based college has recently launched a new unit - Tangent, Trinity's ideas workspace. Tangent, in partnership with Springboard+ is offering a Level 9 (NFQ) Postgraduate Certificate in Innovation and Enterprise Development in Cork.

The course is open to jobseekers and aspiring entrepreneurs as well as those wishing to pursue further study. For graduates, it will act as a 'key differentiator on your CV' demonstrating the skills that employers and industry seek out.

Dan Rogers of Tangent said: “We would like to make the Trinity campus accessible nationwide, and are starting in Limerick, Cork and Galway. Trinity have significant track record in producing graduate entrepreneurs and this offers flexibility to candidates with 70 per cent delivery online and 30 per cent delivery in class. The assessment is a combination of individual and team project work.

“The course takes place over 20 weeks, is practically focused, and encompasses three modules. The first module explores innovation and creativity (in class). The second, Opportunity Generation, Articulation and Recognition (online) looks at the traits of the entrepreneur and the third module Enterprise Development (online) outlines the nuts and bolts of setting up a business. The course is delivered by a combination of academics and industry professionals incorporating project and problem based learning.”

Dan Rogers indicated that: “Although candidates typically require a level 8 degree to be eligible, we do recognise other forms of prior learning and experience. We hope this course could act as a launchpad for those wishing to start, restart or pivot their careers. Entrepreneurship skills are equally attractive to an employer as they are to a prospective investor.”

The course is free for homemakers or those in receipt of jobseekers benefit. A fee of €240 applies for those in employment.

The course begins in Cork on 25 March. An information session will take place on 5 March at 1pm at Bank of Ireland’s Workbench on 70 Patrick Street.
