We were looking for staff to work as front of house security receptionists for a number of corporate clients but found it difficult to get people with the combination of qualifications and licence. We contacted Cork College of Commerce after hearing about the police and security studies course and found exactly what we were looking for. Over the last 5 years we have hired a number of graduates and are very happy with both the calibre of person and the qualifications gained through the college. In fact a number of them have gone on to work directly for our clients in a variety of roles which confirms to me that we are hiring the right people and hope to carry on doing so.

Last year I did the Police and Security Studies Level 5 in the College of Commerce. I really enjoyed my time here at the college and because of it I’m doing my dream job- working in K9 security! I learnt so much in my classes and the teachers were so helpful and were always there to help you if you needed it. The college invited the company I work for, CI Secure in for a talk about the work we do and it was so nice to be back. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the college.

Having completed the Police and Security Studies Course I would highly recommend Cork College of Commerce. Being a mature student and going back to education was quite a daunting step for me. The college put me at ease with its friendly and positive atmosphere. The encouragement, support, advice and knowledge that I received from the teachers helped me to achieve better results and gave me the confidence to take on a greater responsibility in employment. It was an enjoyable learning experience and it created many opportunities for me.

I loved my marketing and event management course in CCOC. It is a great college where you get a lot of support and help from your tutors. It gave me the confidence to pursue higher education, which I am currently studying a degree in Marketing and Multimedia at the University of Roehampton.

CCOC provided me with the encouraging, supportive & motivating environment I needed to excel in my studies & progress to UWSTD where I completed my Marketing degree with just one further year study there. The high marks I received in my degree was testament to the three years I spent in CCOC being constantly challenged & supported by brilliant teachers, as is my job as a Marketing Executive.  The personal approach was one of my best aspects, everyone’s needs were catered for individually and there was no “one size fits all” attitude.
