Schools Outreach Programme

UCC PLUS+ Outreach programme - COVID-19 UPDATE

NEW INTERIM PAYROLL PROCESS FOR SCHOOLS OUTREACH TUTORS: While most of our outreach activities such as Easter School are, of necessity,  cancelled or postponed ,we understand there may still be tutoring work occurring online for exam classes in some of our Linked Schools.  We want to be sure our UCC PLUS+ Schools Tutors have the means to still get paid for their work during the school and university office closures.  We have therefore emailed instructions on April 2nd, from our official email address HEAR@UCC.IE to our 32 Linked Schools and to all known tutors already registered with us this year since October 2019 on how to claim ONLINE for hours worked.  If this is your first time ever claiming, or have yet to claim this year for hours worked on behalf of your school, we would not have had your email address so please email your school or email us at HEAR@UCC.IE  (stating your Full name & School name) for the instructions.

Please do not send forms from the original Tutor Payroll Pack direct to UCC PLUS+, you must follow the new online pay system which still requires a proof of hours worked from your school. 

Wishing you and your families stay safe and well,

Maeve Minihane  & Allison Carroll



The  UCC PLUS+ Schools Outreach Programme has been designed and developed in partnership with our DEIS schools and continuously evolves in response to the needs of students. UCC PLUS+ currently works with 31 linked secondary schools in Cork, Kerry and Waterford (List of Linked Schools).  The programme consists of a variety of activities and initiatives both school and campus-based from 1st year through to Leaving Cert.  The Aim of the Schools Outreach Programme is to:

  • Raise the aspirations of students and parents.
  • Establish connections between students, parents, school and UCC.
  • Introduce students to UCC and the UCC student experience.
  • Enhance students’ academic performance and their ability to compete for university places.
  • Promote the HEAR Scheme as a college entry mechanism.
  • Support students and parents in completing a HEAR application.
