When students graduate from the P-TECH programme, they earn both their traditional second-level qualification and a third-level qualification, and will have the work experTaoiseach Launches P-Tech in Larkin Collegeience needed to be a highly qualified candidate for employment in IT and related areas.

The P-TECH Programme affords students the opportunity to forge a future career in the digital economy. This programme focuses on the areas of Coding, Programming and Robotics. It enables students to develop their problem-solving skills, enhance creativity and prepare future generations for our ever-evolving technological world.

P-TECH also aims to tackle educational disadvantage and increase the numbers of students either finding employment in competitive entry level digital skills roles or progressing to higher education.

Indeed, the P-TECH model is a public education initiative that combines second-level school education with elements of third level education and work experiences such as mentorship and internships. It is directly aligned to job opportunities in the digital economy. Digital economy jobs include some of the technology industry's fastest growing fields, from cybersecurity and cloud computing to cognitive business and digital design, which may not require a university degree, but that may need a specific skillset instead. The programme will therefore involve a commitment of six years from our students to ensure they are prepared for the ever-changing landscape of technology.
