The Advanced Social Studies course will enable you to learn the knowledge and skills to give information, advice and advocacy to people who need it.  You will explore how to empower individuals to be aware of their rights, to exercise those rights and to be able to influence the decisions that affect their lives.

 “If you are feeling like you are in the wrong job, contemplating making a change, but worried it may not work out, I can highly recommend making that change. I did, and couldn’t be happier, but I could not have done it without the tremendous help and support of all the staff in Sallynoggin College of Further Education.  They ensure every student is supported along the way to achieve their full potential, along with gaining confidence and still having fun. Staff take a real genuine interest in all students, bringing out the best in everyone.” 
Anne O’Shea Clarke , Graduate
