“I completed a Medical Secretary course in DCFE. I found the teachers very helpful and they prepared me very well for assignments and exams. I am now in full time work and I would recommend DCFE to anyone looking to go back to education.”

Deborah Jackson, Medical Secretary Graduate

“After many years away from education, I returned with a fear of the unknown. I secured a place on the level 5 Computer course and loved it from the moment I started. After progressing onto the level 6 Networking course I gained advanced entry into year two of a DIT degree. I was awarded a first class honours Computing degree in DIT and have completed a Masters in Cyber-Security. I accredit this to DCFE showing me the educational light. I am now working for IBM, recently promoted and learning for life!”

John Clarke, Computer Systems and Networks Graduate, IBM Cyber Security Employee

“The students I have received from DCFE have been of excellent work ethic, often needing to meet specific deadlines within maintenance tasks and always come with a high level of horticultural knowledge, open to learning and perfecting their skills with myself and my team. Students I have received for work placement from DCFE have gone on to receive summer employment here and even part time positions, which I believe is vital to
experiencing garden maintenance throughout the four seasons and how plants respond to our climate.”

Alex Slazenger, Head Gardener at Powerscourt Estate

“Here in Leeson Park Nursing Home we have been linked to CFE Dundrum College for the last two years. We are always delighted to accept students from the college. Both pre nursing and Health care assistant students attend Leeson Park to complete their clinical placements. I have always found the students to be professional and courteous throughout their placements. They have a good level of clinical knowledge and training which they can utilise and put into practice when training on the floor. This shows the commitment of the college to have the students
prepared and ready with the most up to date information and research available to them. There is fantastic support form the College lecturers
and the Principal and Deputy Principal. We look forward to the continued partnership between CFE Dundrum and Leeson Park.”

Simon Balfe, Director of Nursing Leeson Park Nursing Home

“When I decided to return to education as a mature student, DCFE was my first choice. I cannot speak highly enough about the learning experience – the tutors are super friendly, supportive and approachable.”

“After graduating with the Applied Social Studies award, I was accepted to NUI Maynooth and it is only now that I can see how well I was prepared for Third Level education.”

Iveta Hermannova, Psychology and Social Studies Graduate

“After completing my QQI Level 5 award in DCFE, I went on to study at college in DIT studying Early Childhood Care and Education and I wouldn’t have continued my academic career without encouragement and advice from teachers and classmates in DCFE. I think Dundrum CFE is a great college where all teachers are hard working and dedicated to creating a positive atmosphere. I was extremely grateful for the support and guidance I received at DCFE and I believe the college promotes inclusion and equality for all its students.”
