World of opportunity at Kerry ETB fair
The Kerry ETB has announced details of its 2017 Further Education and Training Fair.
The fair will take place on Wednesday 22 March, from 10am to 6pm at the Brandon Hotel, Tralee, with a range of talks, workshops and numerous skill demonstrations.
The public are invited to this free event with a variety of interactive skill demonstrations ranging from stonecutting, to 3D printing that can make prototypes, culinary arts, tour guiding, hairdressing, beauty, healthcare and childcare and animal grooming.
The day will have a special focus on finance and supports available to learners, from how to apply for a SUSI grant, to the Back to Education Allowance, financial management, as well as academic and personal supports available including adult guidance and the community based mental health Peer Support Network.
This Further Education and Training (FET) Fair will be of interest to jobseekers, second chance learners, school leavers, employers, parents, guidance counsellors and anyone interested in lifelong learning. Schools are invited in the morning, while the focus from lunchtime onwards is for adults and employers.
Thanks to Hugh Culloty's Electical on The Mall in Tralee there will also be three Samsung Galaxy A7 tablets.
Kerry ETB has 20 Further Education and Training centres spread across ten towns in Kerry, offering hundreds of full, part time and online courses, giving people the opportunity to pursue personal and professional learning goals.
This event aims to bring together and showcase the work of all these centres.
Some of the workshops must be pre-booked, although they are free, due to the limited number of places. More information is available on the Kerry ETB website and on the Facebook event page Kerry ETB FET Fair.
Kerry ETB has something for everyone, from world class skills and qualifications to second chance education. We say that sometimes in life you don't get a second chance, but with Kerry ETB you do. So we invite you to be the best that you can be, with Kerry ETB," said KETB Director Owen O'Donnell
