Shaping lives and making change

Hear what learners just like you have to say about studying with us

  • My time with Equal has been more than a second chance at education. It has been the beginning of my self development and has opened so many doors. From the Essentials Skills to the Higher Certificate I grew so much. Now I’m in the final year of my BA Degree!

  • Equal Ireland really did change my life, when opportunity was extremely scarce for me. As a result of the learning they provided and the work that I put in, opportunity is open to me. Thanks to their assistance and ongoing support I found my feet, reclaimed my life and realised my potential

  • I was nervous about the future and unsure about my skills. Because of this course, and the wonderful people I have met along the way, I feel empowered and confident about the future. I feel more than a mother, and I feel it’s important for my children to see me striving for more.
