About This Course

Leaders for life is unlike any programme currently being run for students representatives in Irish colleges. Our aim is to champion and empower those brave students who want to step out of the crowd and put themselves forward as student representatives within the college community.

We want to provide them with practical skills that will enable them to understand their role and be able to conduct their role as a representative effectively. But we also want to support and inspire them to go beyond the role and develop their inner leader.

This course was funded by Bank of Ireland as part of their Enablement Fund.
