Taking a part-time course through Springboard

See how Shane O’Connor got on in his chosen Springboard course at NUI Galway last year…

What course did you study under Springboard+?

Diploma in Lean & Quality Systems

What element of the course did you enjoy the most?

The majority of the course material and the blended learning delivery method made the course enjoyable.

And most importantly, how has the course helped you in your job, or with your career development?

The course has had a very positive impact on my career development. In recent years my company have commenced a ‘Transformation’ initiative whereby the process of continuous improvement has become central to everything within the company, the material covered in the course provided a significant amount of knowledge and understanding of many of the tools and techniques which are now regularly used with the company. I was recently promoted to a Team Lead position of a specialist team and this course was one of the main reasons this advancement.

Any other comments?

It was 16 years since I last studied at 3rd level and I was very apprehensive about taking on this course and the demands required of it. I found the blended learning structure and the course material provided to be an excellent way to learn at a pace that suited me and to be suitably flexible to allow me to balance work and family commitments with the course work. Overall, I found the course to be an excellent way of reintroducing myself to 3rd level education.
