Certificate in Professional Irish - Level 4 (NFQ)

Level 4 of the Certificate in Professional Irish is intended for those who have studied Irish at school, perhaps a good number of years ago, who understand a good deal of the language but have had few opportunities to use it in recent years. Some basic language is taught at the beginning of the course, but the classes then progress at a faster pace than those at Level 3.

The course is aimed at public sector employees who deal with the public on a regular basis and are required on occasion to provide a service through Irish. It seeks to provide participants with the confidence and language skills necessary to communicate through Irish at a reasonably high level, both in the context of their work and in social situations.

The emphasis in the course is on the spoken language and on developing listening skills, but students also have some opportunities to read and to write the language. There is a greater focus on reading and writing than in the Level 3 course.
