4 Laois Third Level Prospectus Mission Statement Laois Third Level works as an outreach centre in partnership with a number of universities and educational institutes throughout Ireland to provide quality third level undergraduate and post graduate courses to adult and continuing education students on a part-time basis in County Laois. Laois Third Level Making Education Accessible During the last ten years Laois Third Level has provided quality third level courses in County Laois. The County Laois VEC, Laois County Council and Laois County Enterprise Board are working in partnership to respond to the low levels of third level attainment in County Laois established the Centre. The third level courses that are on offer are for adult and continuing education students on a part-time basis and take place in Portarlington, Portlaoise and any other town in County Laois that request a third level course to be delivered. This year we are delighted to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with the National College of Ireland to deliver some of their most popular courses. The Centre works as an outreach centre, students attend classes in Laois Third Level while receiving their tuition and certification from their respective universities and educational institution. Laois Third Level The Place to Study In 2001, some of the present Committee members of Laois Third Level had the vision that the provision of part-time third level programmes would address the low levels of third level attainment in the County. The Laois Third Level Initiative was launched to respond to this need. As recent as last December, a report published by The Higher Education Authority of Ireland, described flexibility of programme provision as a key indicator of the responsiveness of Irish higher education to Irish Society. Almost ten years on, LTL has established itself as the main provider of flexible third level quality provision in the Midlands. However, it is true to state that since then Information and Communication Technology has changed the face of education. The development of broadband and the internet enables courses at LTL to be delivered in ways never before possible. Our education partner UCD, delivers its course by satellite via their virtual classroom in Dublin to our Centre in Portarlington. We have state of the art computer room facilities that allow our students access to on-demand learning opportunities. Each classroom is equipped with IT equipment and ceiling mounted projector systems. Laois Third Level Centre is learner centered and for that reason careful attention is paid to the knowledge, skills, needs, experiences, attitudes and beliefs that students bring to the educational setting. LTL tries to cater for individual student differences in style, time, place and pace of learning. The centre does not consider interest and motivation as success factors reserved only for the students. The centre insists that its education partners select excellent lecturers and lecturers who want to participate in the delivery of part-time programmes in adult and continuing education settings. If you are considering taking up a part-time third level programme LTL is the place to start. You will have the opportunity to arrange Career Guidance Service, access to free car parking and canteen facilities in a supportive, relaxed and friendly environment. At Laois Third Level we take care of our students. 4
