Kerry ETB is required (under the 2012 Act) to ensure that its published information is clear, objective, accurate and accessible. We are progressing work on strengthening how we provide the public with information on our FET Programmes and Services and have articulated our commitments to doing this in our Strategy Statement.
Kerry ETB has published a single Learner Handbook for all learners registered on Kerry ETB FET Courses. The handbook provides information on Kerry ETB, some useful tips for learning, how to prepare for the assessment, and gaining qualifications.
Our website and the National FET Course Hub provide public information on all FET courses and services; in line with the guidance on the provision of learner information set out in the QQI Core Statutory Guidelines (section 9.2).
Kerry College publishes a single prospectus providing information on courses and services offered across the colleges three campuses- Listowel Campus, Denny Street and Clash Campus and Monavalley Campus. The Admissions Office at Kerry College provides information and assistance on further education and training opportunities at the colleges three campuses.
