Stand Out From the Crowd

Here at Portobello Institute's Business Department we offer a varied and exciting range of FETAC and other accredited courses.

Our objective is to equip the student with up-to-date, real-world knowledge and skills that can lead to career opportunities and/or progression to higher education.

New to Autumn 2015 is our Pre-University Business Studies Course- this full time course has been specifically designed as a stepping stone to get you into many of the country's top University's such as DCU and UCC. What is more, our students work for an International Events Company during their work experience module. Our students experience how to run an international event in the Convention Centre Dublin and they are paid for their work!

We are proud to have on board a strong team of industry based lecturers that are well respected in their field, and can add value to the students' learning with their years of experience. Here are some of the talented groups of people that tutor on the business courses. Our long history in education has afforded us strong relationships with industry, and as such, we can support students in gaining work experience and we regularly incorporate guest speakers and excursions to add further depth to our courses.

This year we brought our tour students to the Corrib Gas Pipeline to find out what is really going on with Shell and the Community living with the Gas terminal.
This 2 day event allowed our students to meet the residents of the community, hear their stories and attend a seminar by leading experts in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility. Check it out for yourself on our blog!

Keep up to date with some of what the students get up to on our blog. We also have a facebook page where we regularly update it with job opportunities within the industry and on events going on inside and outside the college.
