A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

The Progressive College Network is newly formed organisation comprising private colleges with a common interest in the promotion of the education industry in Ireland and abroad and the promotion of improved standards of education and compliance within the Industry.

WE PROMOTE INTEGRITY

Our goal is to protect the interests of the foreign students coming to Ireland and to assure those students that, until such time as the International Education Mark is fully implemented, there is no risk to the colleges they attend, the completion of the courses they enrol for and most importantly the money they have spent.

WE TAKE CARE OF STUDENTS.

Our members have now implemented an insurance scheme operated by one of the countries longest established brokerages. In the event of a college closure, the policy will organise a transfer of the student to another college to complete their studies or a refund to the students of fees.

WE ARE PROFESSIONAL.

We support the Minister for Justice in her wishes to tighten and improve the industry and the compliance with regulation by all education providers. Our members welcome the implementation of the International Education Mark and call for its introduction as soon as possible.
