Locals trying to make bail from mock jail at Totem Mall

first_imgThere will be plenty more “incarcerated” today, as unsuspecting coworkers and friends are hauled to the mock jail, where they must fundraise enough money to “make bail” before being released.Last year over $33,000 was raised, and all the funds go towards the Cops for Cancer Tour de North bike ride this fall, and ultimately cancer research. The 2013 Tour will kick off in Dawson Creek, stopping in Fort St. John, Hudson’s Hope, Chetwynd, and Mackenzie on its way to Williams Lake, and will have both Constable Vandine and Inspector Pat Egan taking part.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Dhún na nGallTourism with Business5M50115O7491 65448Donegal ETB offers a wide range of FETAC PLC courses that provide valuable and worthwhile options to learners of all ages. PLC courses adopt an integrated approach, focusing on technical knowledge, core skills and work experience. Our courses serve a variety of purposes –• PLCs can equip school leavers & mature students with the necessary skills for the workplace or act as a stepping stone to third-level study. Advertisement • PLCs can give students some breathing space before committing to third-level and to help decide whether to pursue a particular course of study in the longer term.• PLCs can provide a direct route to third level, through a number of schemes, 36 higher education institutions now reserve places for PLC graduates.PLC FETAC Level 5 & 6 courses take place in 4 centres across Co. Donegal; Errigal College, Letterkenny, St. Catherine’s, Killybegs, Finn Valley College, Stranorlar and Coláiste Phobail Cholmcille, Tory Island.All courses are full-time and for the duration of one year and offer Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI) Further Education and Training Awards Council (FETAC) accreditation at Level 5 & 6. PLCs offer a mixture of practical work, academic work and work experience.They are designed as a step towards skilled employment and are closely linked to industry and its needs.The Higher Education Links Scheme ‘links’ specific FETAC Level 5 Certificates and some Level 6 Advanced Certificates to a number of reserved places on higher education courses and the Institutes of Technology.In addition to this, some higher education institutions operate an admissions criteria and scoring system for non-specific FETAC Level 5 Certificate and Level 6 Advanced Certificate applicants.Anne Mc Hugh, Education Officer with Donegal ETB notes that a PLC course offers a perfect bridge for students which links second level with third level. “Students often experience a significant difference in the teaching and learning environment at third level.The teaching approach at PLC level successfully uses a combination of the highly personalised second level approach and the self-directed focus of third level thereby equipping the student with an excellent set of learning tools and skills for future study.A wide range of disciplines are covered including business/ebusiness, marketing, computing, sport and leisure, art craft and design, tourism, horticulture, childcare & nursing etc.Acceptance to courses is by application form and/or interview.
