The Access Service aims to ensure widened enrolment in CIT from under-represented groups. The Service aims to lead the way in high quality, professional and responsive access provision. This is achieved through a strong commitment to education and social inclusion principles and by working in partnership with all key stakeholders.

The Service organises and delivers a range of pre-entry, entry and post-entry support programmes for the various groups we work with. The Access Service is managed by Deirdre Creedon, Access Officer.


The CIT Access Service engages with the following groups

  1. Mature Students
  2. Students with Disabilities
  3. Students from Linked Schools 
  4. Ethnic Minorities
