Description:

St. Angela's College is founded on over 400 years of education tradition. This is a tradition which values both Christian ideals and academic excellence. As a small College within the wider National University of Ireland network, there is a strong community environment which is recognised for its friendly, caring, atmosphere characterised by respect for the individual. Founded as a Training College for Teachers for Home Economics, St. Angela's has expanded its Education Services far beyond that original remit. Today it provides a range of academic programmes in Education, Food, Textiles, Fashion and Design, Nursing and Economic and Social Studies. St. Angela's College has a long history in developing innovative educational programmes to meet emerging trends and, in particular, providing access to third-level education for students from all over Ireland - on both full-time and part-time programmes. In line with its aim to be responsive to local, regional and national education needs, the College provides a wide range of part time courses at Certificate, Diploma, Degree and Masters level through links with other third level institutions, primarily, NUI Galway. In 1996, developments in nurse education led to the formation of a partnership between the Northwestern Health Board, Sligo General Hospital School of Nursing and the College and the establishment of a Nursing Department in the College. Subsequently the partnership was extended to include Cregg House School of Nursing (Mental Handicap). The Nursing Department, in conjunction with the Schools of Nursing at Sligo General Hospital and Cregg House, have offered the Registration/Diploma in Nursing (General or Mental Handicap). The nursing qualification has now become a University Degre in 2002. From September 2002, a four year Bachelor of Nursing Science Degree in both General and Mental Handicap Nursing is being offered. On completion of the four-year degree programme, the successful candidate will also be entitled to register with An Bord Altranais, the governing body of nursing in Ireland. In 1998, the College offered for the first time, a full time BA in Economics and Social Studies in association with the National University of Ireland, Galway. The College has a long history of involvement in Cross Border Projects with Northern Ireland, from the early days of Co-operation North Conferences to the current involvement in the Citizenship Development Programme. In more recent times, the College has strengthened its links to industry with the establishment of a Food Product Development Centre to respond to the needs of food businesses in the Northwest by providing innovative and cost competitive product offerings on a contract basis for its clients.
