WHAT IS THE CCL MISSION?
The Certificate in Contemporary Living (CCL) is an innovative, two-year, part-time programme of study for people with intellectual disabilities, which is delivered in a third-level setting. It enables students to develop skills to support increased self-determination and to maximise their capacities for participation in, and contribution to, their own communities and the wider society.
The programme is underpinned by the values of respect, recognition of diversity and inclusivity, and is informed by a rights-based agenda.
The CCL course facilitates structured opportunities for interaction between CCL students and the wider UCC student and staff bodies. This creates spaces for awareness raising and reciprocal learning, enriches the university as a whole, and enhances campus and community engagement.
