Open Day Well Worth A Visit
Kerry College of Further Education (KCFE), which operates under the auspices of Kerry ETB, specialise in the provision of quality assured further education courses, otherwise known as PLC courses, offering certification at Level 5 and Level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications for adults and school leavers.
The courses include: medical secretarial, legal secretarial, office administration, business, pre-university law, security studies, social studies, sports therapy, pre-nursing, engineering, furniture making, childcare, veterinary assistant, software development and many more. In fact there are over 40 courses on offer.
The courses at KCFE are designed to prepare students for work by giving them specific skills and training which enable them to find employment in a variety of career areas. The college has an excellent work experience programme and this often results as well in students being offered employment. The PLC also acts as a stepping-stone to other third level qualifications at ITs and Universities.
The college is holding an Open Day on Wednesday 9th March from 11am-7pm at its college campus in Clash, Tralee. School leavers, their parents/guardians as well as those mature people who are considering a return to education/training in order to gain a recognised qualification are welcome to pop in on the day.
Third Level Grants
Two representatives from SUSI, the third level grants body, will be available in the college as well as a representative from the Department of Social Protection who can advise on a one to one basis about the Back to Education Allowance and any entitlement questions which people may have.
The application system for those wishing to secure an interview for a place at the college is now open online at www.kerryfe.ie and any queries regarding the Open Day or any aspect of what the college offers can be directed to the college office on 066 71 21 741.
