New courses in SFCE PLC

Some new courses on offer in Sallynoggin College:

This year, due to expansion in the scope of Wellbeing and Fitness training, we are delighted to have introduced a Yoga Teacher Training course, including Wellbeing and Holistic studies. This course also offers training in Reflexology, Massage and Nutrition.

Pilates Teacher Training including Somatic Studies is new for September 2019. This unique course combines Pilates teacher training with body conditioning, nutrition and exercise. This also includes Movement Therapy, which compliments and enhances Pilates teaching.

This course will provide a broad understanding and awareness of the term ‘disability’ and provide training to work in a broad range of caring and educational environments. Learners will use their teaching and learning skills to enable individuals with disabilities to overcome barriers in the workplace and educational settings.
Musical Theatre and Dance
Other recent course developments include the introduction of Musical Theatre to the Dance course, which will enable students to acquire a broader range of skills in Dance, Performance and Musical Theatre. The enhanced range of performing arts skills is vital in this increasingly competitive field, to ensure the student can compete with the all-singing, all-dancing and acting ‘triple theatre performer!

Our easy online application is FREE, and is open NOW! It will remain open up until September 2019.

Check us out at for a full list of courses.
