IT Carlow is one of the largest providers of higher education lifelong learning (LLL)  programmes in the country; LLL enrolments currently account for over 51% of its total learner population. The faculty operates across Carlow, Wexford and Wicklow campuses and programmes are designed to provide maximum choice and flexibility to learners. 

The Open Week coincides with on-going enrolment for the faculty’s Springboard+ programmes commencing in September 2021. Springboard+ offers fully funded third-level college places on a part-time basis to jobseekers and returners, offering the chance to study part-time while continuing to work. It also removes the financial barrier for many. Courses currently on offer include Supply Chain Management, Cybersecurity, Data  Science, and Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs.
