Welcome to Pearse College


As you walk through the front door of Pearse College of Further Education, you will notice a sculpture inscribed with the words:

“Education should foster, education should inspire.”

Since we began offering courses to adults in 1967 we have been motivated by these words of Padraig Pearse. We believe that if you take the first step of returning to education with us, then it is our responsibility to motivate, challenge and encourage you to take the next one to:

  • Start or restart your education
  • Start on the path to a career
  • Start a new stage of your life

Our courses are designed to prepare students for employment and third level education in an adult-friendly environment. In Pearse College, mature students returning to education mix with school leavers, teachers and students, working together to discover capabilities, explore possibilities and realise potential.

It is an exciting and inspirational place to learn, with a highly qualified, dedicated and caring staff, excellent facilities, a unique atmosphere and a proven track record.
