Certificate in Professional Irish - Level 5 (NFQ)

Level 5 of the Certificate in Professional Irish is suitable for people who are comfortable speaking Irish and who use the language from time to time – in a social context or at work, for example. The course topics are more challenging than those at Level 4, and are discussed in more depth than in the classes at that lower level.

The programme is aimed at public sector employees who deal with the public on a regular basis and whose work involves Irish, as well as those who would like to work through Irish. It seeks to provide participants with the language skills necessary to communicate naturally and without difficulty through Irish, both in the context of their work and in social situations. The course also aims to provide participants with the confidence necessary to work independently in Irish, rather than depending on assistance from colleagues who have a greater competency in the language.

The spoken language, listening skills, reading and writing all feature in the programme, and there is a greater focus on those latter two skills than in the Level 4 course.
