Finalists at the Education Awards 2017

The Irish Education Awards were held last night in the Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin 4.

Another awards blog! We really are keeping busy lately, aren’t we?

Irish Education Awards

The Education Awards recognise, encourage and celebrate excellence in third level education in Ireland from both State and privately funded institutions. And, as were finalists for an award for Best Online Learning Experience we were looking forward to spending the night amongst colleagues in the education sector.

Attending the awards on behalf of was Director Cathal McNamara and Cenit Group Managing Director Vaeni MacDonnell. Both were well suited and booted for what turned out to be a great night.

The event was well attended by many wonderful Universities, Colleges, Institutes and educators. We were honoured to be considered for an award alongside Trinity College, University of Ulster, University College Cork, Athlone Cork and Dublin Institutes of Technology amongst others.

Unfortunately, the award didn’t go to Instead, to our colleagues at the LINC Programme.  A good victory and recognition for their hard work.
