“My biggest achievement while in National Learning Network was the restoration of my self-worth, confidence and dedication. Within NLN they care about you personally.”
These were the words of Karen Perry, a student at National Learning Network Bray, who was a speaker at their Certification Ceremony which was held in the Royal Hotel. Karen was receiving a QQI Major Award in Information Processing as well as Advanced ECDL awards.
Over 60 present and past students received QQI certificates in a range of subjects from Business Administration to Employability Skills. They were joined by family and friends for the evening.
