Entrepreneur, Alicia Garrigan, visited Entrepreneurial Skills students at Blackrock Further Education Institute (BFEI) last week.

Alicia is owner/ founder of GirlGottaChange! www.girlgottachange.com

She started the company at 20, at the start of the pandemic. She was still in college, working part-time and couldn’t find a planner that had exactly what she needed. So, she created an all-in-one undated alternative with little or zero waste.

Her products include; Weekly life planners, Health & Fitness planners, Academic planners to name but a few…

Today at 24, Alicia has over 45,000 customers worldwide, thanks to TikTok, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. Through hard work she has turned her company into a 7-figure e-Commerce brand! She now has a team of people to help run her empire!

Alicia was brilliant with the students, diligently answered every question, inspiring each student to continue on their own entrepreneurial journey.

Bringing the classroom to life like this gives BFEI students a taste for what they can achieve.

BFEI offers a wide range of courses, evening courses and adult education in Blackrock, South Dublin.

Blackrock Further Education Institute is a College of Further Education offering an excellent range of professional career courses. Graduates enjoy professional qualifications certified and accredited by nationally and internationally-recognised examining and professional bodies. Blackrock Further Education Institute delivers a comprehensive programme of evening classes. Courses can be taken to achieve professional qualifications in Accounting, Information Technology, Design, Beauty and Holistic Therapies. Additionally, a variety of hobby (personal interest) courses are also provided.

BFEI, formerly Senior College Dun Laoghaire (SCD), was established in 1982 under the statutory authority of Dun Laoghaire Vocational Education Committee.In June 2014, Senior College relocated to a state-of-the-art campus in Blackrock village and rebranded as Blackrock Further Education Institute. The college runs courses, evening classes and adult courses for the people of Blackrock and surrounding areas. As a non-profit organisation we charge the minimum fee necessary to cover the costs of courses at the college.

Classes run from September to May each year and are generally offered between 6.30pm and 9.30pm on Monday and Tuesday nights. Having moved to our new campus at Main Street, Blackrock, Co Dublin, we are delighted that our students and staff will  benefit from a modern and well equipped environment in which to teach and learn on our many courses and adult education programmes.
