I knew that the career path that I wanted to pursue was to be a social worker. I did some research on which route would be best to take. Every avenue I researched brought me right back to the Level 5 Social Care and Psychology course in Greenhills College as the best starting point and a gateway to progress my studies further in any University that had a Social Care Course. I had heard from past students of their time in Greenhills College, and this gave me the confidence that I had made the right choice. I have gone on to do my degree in Applied Social Care at TU Dublin. I am really enjoying my course and feel Greenhills College taught me everything I needed to learn to go on and do my degree with confidence.
