Removing the mystery of foreign languages for young people, and seeing them glow with pride after they are able to introduce themselves in either German or French has given me a job satisfaction I have been missing for 30 years. I chose Hibernia College because it offered me the flexibility to study which was invaluable to me.
I had heard about the Professional Master’s in Primary Education from Hibernia College and I met a number of excellent teachers who had come through that route and who wholeheartedly advised me to pursue it. Once I made the decision to apply to Hibernia, my life changed for the better, and I am over the moon that I completed the PMEP and have the opportunity to work with wonderful children. If you feel a real grá for working with children and supporting them to reach their full potential and develop into well-rounded citizens, then the PMEP is for you. It is a challenging course and you will need the support of family and friends. I would recommend engaging in all the on-site days and make friends with others in your cohort as their support will be invaluable. Enjoy every minute of it.
I chose Hibernia because I knew the standard of education and training provided by the college, and in particular the tutors, was excellent. It also allowed me, as a mature student, the option to continue to work a flexible schedule and support myself while earning my teaching qualification.
I chose Hibernia College because the blended learning environment suited my need for flexibility. I researched the programme and it was really well structured with highly relevant content. You learn remotely but are part of an active learning community who meet once or twice a week online and once a fortnight or so face to face. The lecturers and tutors are very accessible and responsive through email and by phone. Also the online learning environment enhanced my digital literacy which was critically important for me going forward. I am delighted with the decision to do the PME. It has been a game changer for me.
