aoife maddock "Making the decision to return to education and completing my Leaving Certificate at BIFE was a great decision that I would never look back on negatively. The staff at BIFE made me so comfortable and relieved any stress I had throughout the year. In my opinion, the work you decide to put into your year of studying the Leaving Certificate, you will definitely come out with what you deserve. Doing this gave me a great amount of confidence to continue on with other achievements in my life. I could not have been happier with my results, and cannot wait for my next steps in education with the help of my Leaving Certificate" - Aoife Maddock

wayne cox"Returning to education after thirty two years was a daunting prospect. The staff at BIFE with their high standard of teaching made the experience an enjoyable one. The teachers made the long forgotten subjects easy to understand. 

 From my own experience of the Adult Leaving Cert course, if students are prepared to work hard then good results are easily achievable. 

 At the age of forty eight I passed with three A1's, an A2 and a B1. It is never too late to further your education." - Wayne Cox
