The REACH programme is an admissions scheme which offers places on ITB’s courses on reduced points, to school leavers from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. ITB has a reserved a number of places on its courses for REACH students at reduced leaving certificate points. This means that if eligible you will be considered for entry on a reduced points basis provided that your points achieved are within 90% of the points required for the ITB course you have listed on your CAO form (i.e. you are eligible to be offered a place where your points awarded fall short by less than 10% of the points required up to a maximum of 30 points) and subject to places being available.
The places are spread across all our courses and consequently a student may not be offered their first course choice, but might be offered a subsequent choice. The order of preference on the CAO application form should at all times reflect your genuine preference choice. Applicants must also meet the minimum course entry requirements to be considered for one of the reduced points places.

It’s not all about Points as ITB launches its first ‘Learn and Work’ Programme in Networking Technologies – a full time course combining industry work placement and hands on third level learning.
In response to demands from companies in the ICT sector and increasing interest in technology programmes amongst school leavers and mature students, the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown’s (ITB) Department of Informatics is today launching a new programme in Networking Technologies – ‘Higher Certificate in Science in Computing’. The Higher Certificate in Science in Computing is a new innovative third level programme that has been designed with industry as it combines in-company placement with up to date technical skills that are currently very much in demand.
Course Delivery :
The Programme will take place over a two year period with over 50% of the student’s time being spent applying their knowledge whilst learning new applied skills in the workplace through a work placement. Each student will spend four months studying in ITB at the beginning of Year One and Year Two learning the theory and skills required in the workplace. During the following eight months each year, students will then spend 80% of their time applying these skills and knowledge within the work environment.
Interested companies should contact Justin Purcell 01 885 1372 Justin.email@example.com
