Programme Approval, Development and Ratification

Kerry ETB delivers programmes leading to a QQI Major, Special Purpose and Advanced Certificates, together with programmes leading to certification awarded by other bodies.

The policy for programme development was developed to ensure programmes are developed consistently and with regard to the resources needed to deliver them when validated.

Kerry ETB recognises the importance of the separation of programme development, the recommendation for approval, and approval.  These three defined points are core to the procedure followed by the governance units of Kerry ETB in submitting new programmes for:

    1. recommendation of the proposal to develop a new programme (FET Management Group)
    2. approval of the proposal (Programme Governance Board)
    3. approval of the documentation to be submitted to the awarding body (FET Quality Council)

Kerry ETB has agreed its full suite of FET programmes into discrete categories:

    • courses for employment
    • courses for progression (including Tertiary courses)
    • courses for Pathways to levels 5 & 6
    • courses for Pathways to level 3 & 4 (including Pathways from School)

Programme Review

Kerry ETB’s engagement with programme review will help us to build the capacity of both subject matter experts and members of our Programme Governance Board, specifically in relation to making informed decisions about programmes of education and training.  Kerry ETB prioritises programmes for review where there is an identified need for change to a particular programme and by volume of learners.

The Self-Evaluation, Monitoring and Review policy sets out the framework for the review of programmes.
