New LTI course at Cumann na Daoine: QQI level 5 Community Development, a first in the region!

We are saying farewell to our successful Culinary Skills & Tourism programme as this comes to an end in August. We congratulate all the students who’ve undertaken that course and are delighted to announce that from September 2023  we have been approved to run a QQI level 5 Community Development programme, something that fits perfectly with the Cumann na Daoine’s ethics and practice.
