On Tuesday, the 1st of March we had the pleasure in assisting at the Launch of Dorset Strategic Plan 2016-2019 at Croke Park Hotel .
The strategy set out a vision for the future and describes specific targets in five distinct areas – Teaching & Learning, Internationalisation, Student Experience, Staff Development and Building Partnerships.
Launching the plan, Hugh Hughes, Director acknowledge the excellent work of the College staff in transforming the college over the last ten years and encouraged the full-hearted participation of all staff in making Dorset College a better place for students to learn and for staff to develop. He stated “the strategic plan is an ambitious one but it will assist us in our decision making and will give the College a clear focus over the next three years”
At the launch Dorset College signed a Collaborative Agreement with Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) which will bring a significant number of additional international students to Dorset College and LYIT.
Paul Hannigan, President of LYIT, speaking at the launch praised Dorset College for the preparation of the strategic plan and said that LYIT saw the agreement with Dorset College as very important to LYIT’s effort to grow by attracting many more international students to study at LYIT.
We are looking forward to developing a close relationship with Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) which will bring us mutual benefits.
