Description

Dick Langford took up duty as CEO of Cork VEC in 1978. He has much to say about education in the VEC schools in Cork during this time, and he points out the many and complex reasons for the delay in the establishment of Cork RTC. He talks at length about his brief on his arrival in Cork and his encounters with academic staff. While the National Institute of Higher Education (NIHE) in Limerick, now the University of Limerick, was established under the aegis of a planning board in 1970, the first Governing Body was appointed in 1975. Dick Langford was invited to sit on this board, at a most interesting and challenging time. His tenure as CEO in Cork was colourful and intense at times. He discusses the School of Music and its development over the years and he feels that the hosting of the International Apprentice Competition, now known as the International Skills Olympics was a major factor in the bonding and teamworking of the institutions of learning in Cork.
