Welcome to the World of Business at Tullamore College, where we offer:
These subjects will open a wide range of courses at Third Level and will prepare you for the world of work. You will also gain a set of life skills to prepare you for the Business of Living, whatever your career path.
Tullamore College is twinned with Integra- a multinational medical device company based in Tullamore- under the Business In The Community "Schools' Business Partnership" programme.
With the help of Matthew Treacy, Integra's Human Resources Business Partner, our school organises visits to the company, so that our students can see the world of business at work. This is an invaluable opportunity for students of business.
