KCETB’s FET service is responsible for the management and operation of 17 QQI registered centres across 13 FET hubs and 30 community-based outreach locations across Kilkenny and Carlow. The FET service supports some 8,000 learners annually and offers a range of funded full and part-time learning opportunities and supports. Several FET locations throughout Kilkenny and Carlow are part of a community of learners and are exciting places to start or progress your education and training. FET can put you on a pathway to anywhere you want to go – in education, in work and in life.
KCETB’s FET service offers a range of nationally and internationally accredited courses that offer valuable opportunities to move into exciting and interesting vocations and careers, or which provide a platform to develop the skills to flourish in higher education. KCETB’s FET centres have progression agreements with a number of third-level institutions, with clear links between the further education and training course and your chosen third-level course. There is clear evidence that learners who have completed a FET course gain valuable academic, social and personal skills, which support their transition to, engagement with and retention in third-level education.
