Quality Assurance

Kerry ETB is developing new policies and procedures (QAP), drawing from  its current quality practices- ensuring a consistent approach is implemented across FET provision and services.  The documents set out in this section describe the overarching approach and quality policy of Kerry ETB and confirm its Quality Assurance policy and procedures. We are actively collaborating with our sectoral partners.  The nine goals set out in Kerry ETB’s Strategy for 2018-2022 are directly influencing our approach to new QAP development. Policies and procedures will align with the achievement of these goals and in turn with the strategic management and governance of Kerry ETB.
