Kate Duffy, Director of Human Resources and Learner Services at NWRC said: “At Strabane Campus we offer a warm welcome to everyone, especially pupils from our local schools. North West Regional College is very proud of our partnerships with local schools and we are delighted with the continued success of the School Links programme.

“NWRC offers a wide range of vocational qualifications to post primary school pupils at our campuses in Strabane, Strand Road, Springtown, Greystone and Limavady. These qualifications are designed to provide pupils with a vocational qualification in their selected areas, alongside their GCSE studies.

“The pupils attend the college one day per week and have found this very beneficial in assisting them to gain an insight into a career path they may not have considered beforehand and to prepare them for further education. I’d like to wish them all every success with their future careers.

“I would also like to thank Derg Mourne Learning Community and all schools involved in collaboration with NWRC.”

What Our Students Think

James Mckeown

Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT Practitioners

Programming for Apps, websites and devices is something that I wanted to specialise in, but when I started doing A-Levels at school I realised that I wasn’t getting the opportunity to specialise my career in the way I had hoped. So when I discovered that this course at NWRC offered a pathway onto a degree in Computer Science I jumped at the chance!”

NVQ Level 2 in Professional Cookery

I studied Engineering at University for three years before I realised it wasn’t what I wanted to do. So I decided to follow my passion and become a chef. That’s why I applied to NWRC.
