Amazing Opportunity and tickets are free!!! Assessments will be carried out by a Manchester United coach!!
USIT is giving anyone between the ages of 18-30, with a passion for soccer, the chance to go to the US and coach.

Dance freely with the newly released leaves,
Whose drifts and turns hide conversations kept
For seasons held
And let the nights wrap round you fold by fold
Orange fire, spice, write joy upon the cold..."πŸ˜‰

John Halligan

I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon meeting with staff and students at the Waterford College of Further Education as part of Vocational Skills Week.

The college has almost 800 students enrolled and offers 45 different apprenticeships across a range of professions.

I attended WCFE when it was known as Waterford CTI in my younger days, it's amazing to see how far it's come as an institution. I wish the staff and all students the best in their future endeavors.
