College of FET Open Day highlights Mulgrave Street and Kilmallock Road campuses
Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board’s College of Further Education and Training delivers programmes to over 24,000 learners each year across 28 College of FET Campuses throughout the Limerick and Clare region.
Two of these campuses, the College of FET, Mulgrave Street Campus and the nearby Kilmallock Road Campus, recently held an Open Day for prospective learners who got to meet with staff and learners, explore clubs and campus facilities, and see the range of courses on offer at each campus.
The open day was perfect for learners considering what pathway to take in the continuation of their education, or indeed contemplating a return to education as the campuses are a valued and worthwhile choice.
Prospective learners also had the opportunity to speak with staff and learn more about the huge range of flexible training and learning opportunities that each individual campus possesses.
The unified prospectus that incorporates each of these fantastic campuses is filled with options – not only for school leavers, but for adults alike – that provide clear pathways to further education and career-based progression.
Billy, a learner of Advanced Broadcasting and Production spoke about the facilities saying, “The state of the art facilities are amazing and are always available to use, the studio is great, the radio station is great and it’s a great place to learn!”
Rachel, a Beauty Therapy learner commented, “It’s different from secondary school and the typical student teacher relationships, as here you feel a friendship with the teachers who offer an ongoing mentorship.”
Simone, a Fashion Design learner said, “This environment has opened up my creativity and I feel I have gotten to know myself a bit better.”
David, the Student Union President, College of FET, Mulgrave Street Campus spoke of the many clubs of societies saying, “There are so many clubs and societies available including LGBTQ, photography, hairdressing and even Dungeons and Dragons! If you want to create your own society, you can sign up ten friends and the college will fund it!”
Georgie, a potential learner at the College of FET, Mulgrave Street Campus concluded, “This open day was brilliant, the college has amazing facilities and I got a great opportunity to get a taste of everything available.”
Programmes are co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Union.
