Course Instructors

Working as a tutor at Dóchas don Óige, we really have the opportunity to get to know the trainees we work with. When a trainee starts we assure them that this is a chance for them to make a fresh start with regard to their learning. We understand that each trainee is different, and therefore, needs to be treated as an individual in how they learn. We do our best as tutors at Dóchas don Óige  to use a different approach to learning and through years of experience we have developed effective methods that work for our learners. Dóchas don Óige offers so much more than a place of learning for the young people who attend the centre, and as tutors we like to think that we can offer more also in terms of learning and the personal development of the young person.
