Access Your Pathway



Kerry College welcomed more than 35 prospective learners to its Access Day on Tuesday the 16th and Wednesday 17th January 2024 across its five campus locations. The event offered learners currently engaged in Level 4 Kerry ETB Youthreach programmes the opportunity to experience a Kerry College course they are interested in applying for in the next academic year 2024/2025.  

Access Day is part of the Access Your Pathway Programme established within the Admissions Office. The aim of this programme is to both identify and address barriers so that prospective learners can progress to full-time or part-time programmes. This initiative aims to create a supportive environment for individuals facing socio-economic challenges, negative educational experiences, disabilities, or prolonged absence from formal education. Our goal is to facilitate access to Further Education and Training, inspiring success and building futures.  

Beginning a new course can seem daunting as it is accompanied by unfamiliar surroundings, timetables, learning outcomes and faces. The Access Day was created to overcome these unfamiliarities as well as highlight to prospective learners if their chosen course is in fact the right one for them. If the reality doesn’t match their expectations, there are over 180+ courses available, giving them the opportunity to reconsider and explore other options! Continued application support and information is provided to all prospective applicants by the Access and Pathways Information Officers, Phena and Tara. 

 The prospective learners were interested in a variety of Kerry College Full Time programmes and Apprenticeships including Healthcare Support, Art, Applied Social Studies, Animal Care, and Wind Turbine Maintenance Technician to name a few!
