Kerry College is an integrated college of further education and training. This means we offer a range of full and part time further education courses and skills training courses geared at college progression and employment. We also have a large apprenticeship training facility.
Applications for all full-time and part-time programmes should be made online - via the Kerry College website. Your application will be processed using our FETCHCOURSES system.
If you haven't signed up for a FETCH account, you'll need to do this first. It's free and a one-time setup.
For progression-focused courses, you are put on a waiting list. Places are typically offered by date of application but an increasing amount of these courses are recruited by admissions interview or portfolio submission. For employment-focused courses, you attend an admissions interview. A weighted scoring system is used and places are offered in order of how you score. You may also need to do a trainability test, pass a medical assessment and get Garda vetted.
Not exactly. An Apprenticeship is a three way contract of employment between you, your employer and SOLAS - with on-the-job and off-the-job training delivered in phases. The first step is to secure a job with an approved apprentice employer. Full details are available on: www.apprenticeship.ie or from our Apprenticeship Services team on 066-7149600.
