GMB COLLEGE, founded in 2015, is a fully accredited college providing education and training to QQI level 6 in a wide variety of courses to include: Human Resources, Employment Law, Business Law, Industrial Relations, Conflict Resolution, Equality and Diversity, Health and Safety Representation and Management, Security Industry Certification and ECDL Computer Training as well as a wide number of mandatory certification courses such as Manual Handling, Occupational First Aid, Patient Handling, Safety at work, Safe Pass, HACCP, etc.
The GMB College ethos is to educate the workforce with proven, quality, and accredited programmes in order to improve the prospects of our learners in a growing and evolving workplace, to provide opportunities for learners to progress and/or continue their education so that they have the opportunity to up-skill and/or retrain, to keep their mandatory and regulatory training up to date and to develop new proficiencies.
Our courses target education in safety, health and welfare compliance, employment and business law compliance, best practice in human resources, industrial relations and staff relations competencies. In addition we have designed packages of complimentary certificate courses that cater for the specific mandatory requirement needs of particular industries. For example, we have a “childcare sector package” which combines manual handling, occupational first aid and HACCP, thereby ensuring that the pre-school regulations are satisfied and all the necessary competencies are in place to satisfy insurance requirements.
All of the courses of GMB College are affordable and provided in a flexible programme of classes so that they can be accessed by people who are unemployed, in part time and in full time employment.

The GMB College approach to education is to provide a positive attitude and experience of education for our learners, thereby improving their progress towards higher education awards and/or employment with genuine prospects and sustainability. We also firmly believe that equipping learners with theory is important but they have to be able to apply that learning in practice, so all of our assessment and assignment procedures are centred around immediate application of the skills in the workplace, which is then supported with constructive feedback and refinement.
