Access to Programmes of Study

Beach-folkEver since we began work in 1992 our principal aim has been to offer adult learners access to higher and further education.

We can help you name the skills you wish to develop or acquire and use when you conclude the award.

We offer group tuition for Diplomas, Graduate Diplomas, Bachelors Degree, Masters, Higher Masters and Licence from several institutions

When Ann-Marie Ryan joined the original Benedictine Study & Arts Centre team in 1992 her motivating energy was to work with adult learners and help them gain university level education.

We remain committed to continue this legacy  and continue to offer Study Skills and Preparation to many programmes at the Benedictine Institute or elsewhere.

Certificate/Diploma in Liturgical Studies – for License in Sacred Liturgy (Pontifical Atheneum of Sant Anselmo, Rome) –

Certificate/Diploma in Liturgical Studies – for Masters in Theology and Religious Studies (KULeuven)

Languages – English, Latin, Greek, Hebrew, French, Spanish

Continuing Professional Development approaches

  • Group Facilitation – Group facilitation cares for the process of a meeting or workshop so that all can fully contribute. It aims to use the skills of all participants and help everyone be aware of conflict or avoidance that might compromise the outcome of the meeting
  • Consultation – to assist an individual or group of individuals to clarify and address immediate concerns by following a systematic problem-solving process.
  • Coaching – to enhance a person’s competencies in a specific skill area by providing a process of observation, reflection, and action.
  • Communities of Practice – to improve professional practice by engaging in shared inquiry and learning with people who have a common goal
  • Lesson Study – to solve practical dilemmas related to intervention or instruction through participation with other professionals in systematically examining practice
  • Mentoring – to promote an individual’s awareness and refinement of his or her own professional development by providing and recommending structured opportunities for reflection and observation
  • Reflective Supervision – to support, develop, and ultimately evaluate the performance of employees through a process of inquiry that encourages their understanding and articulation of the rationale for their own practices
  • Technical Assistance – to assist individuals and their organization to improve by offering resources and information, supporting networking and change efforts.
