Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education has issued an open invitation for its Open Day on Thursday March 2.
Prospective students are advised that they do not need CAO points to do a course, just a willingness to learn. Interested parties can attend the event between 12 and 7pm on the Coolock campus.
Post Leaving Certificate and mature students alike are welcome to apply.
The day promises an action-packed programme of events, including interactive workshops and demonstrations from staff and students. There will be activities such as t-shirt printing, personality tests, mobile journalism, hair styling, taste-testing, massage, flower arranging and much more.
