Pictured are some of the first graduates to complete the specially designed Advanced Diploma in Management Practice along with the latest group of registered students on the programme, at a University of Ulster facilitated workshop in Cavan recently. The Advanced Diploma in Management Practice – Female Entrepreneurs, is accredited through the University of Ulster as part of the HATCH (Higher Attainment Through Cross-Border Hubs) Programme. The first group of FemalesEntrepreneurs graduated in December 2011 and since then, three more groups have registered to participate on this practical and prestigious course. The first group of women met the latest intake of students at a recent Library Tutorial held at Cavan Innovation & Technology Centre. The tutorial, reinforced the informal networking that happens between the Female Entrepreneur Groups and the partner institutions as well as the formal, remote access learning that is facilitated by the programme.
Earlier this year the programme received funding for the Graduates of the Advanced Diploma in Management Practice-Female Entrepreneurs to progress to Degree level as part of the programme. Commenting on this exciting development, Dympna McCarron, Programme Manager articulated the delight of all of the partners at being able to offer these ladies the opportunity to participate on a fully financed, management programme up to degree level, which is tailored to their business, education and personal needs in their region. This presents a wonderful opportunity for all and is testament to the value of the outputs of the programme and the commitment of students and delivery partners alike.
