Resources and Supports
Learner guidance, academic support and psychological support is provided to learners enrolled in Kerry ETB courses. College principals/ Campus and Centre managers are responsible for providing information about learner support available to enrolled learners. Kerry ETB colleges receive a funding allocation to provide guidance and counselling sessions. Kerry ETB hopes that each learner will have a learning experience that is enriching and rewarding. Kerry ETB has developed a Learner Handbook to give advice and information to help learners get the most from their time studying with Kerry ETB. It contains information on Getting to know Kerry ETB, Getting Ready for Learning, Getting Ready for Assessment and Getting to Know the Value of Your Qualification. It is for learners who are starting and attending courses in Kerry ETB centres or Kerry College Campuses on Kerry ETB programmes. it also provides advice on the range of supports available to learners.
Learning Support Centres provide advice and support to learners in Kerry College Campuses. In addition, Kerry ETB recognises the value of actively assisting learners to maintain their mental wellbeing. Within each centre, and for each course, a designated person is assigned responsibility to address learner concerns on a case by case basis. In addition, the Psychological Support Service is available to students in Youthreach centres. The Psychological Support Service responds to critical incidents that occur within the Kerry ETB FET provision.
