There was once a time when students were forced to leave the county to pursue certain PLC courses in Cork and Limerick but, thanks to the vision of Kerry ETB, with the establishment in Tralee of Kerry College of Further Education (formerly Tralee Community College) students can now access a very broad range of post leaving certificate courses in a college setting without having to incur the cost of having to move to another county.

“Kerry College of Further Education (KCFE) specialise in the provision of quality assured further education courses, otherwise known as PLC courses, offering certification at Level 5 and Level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications,” said Mary Murphy of KCFE.

The courses include medical secretarial, legal secretarial, office administration, business, pre-university law, security studies, social studies, sports therapy, pre-nursing, engineering, furniture making, childcare, veterinary assistant, software development and many more.

“The courses at KCFE are designed to prepare students for work by giving them specific skills and training which enable them to find employment in a variety of career areas.  The PLC also acts as a stepping-stone to other third level qualifications at ITs and Universities,” said Mary Murphy.

The college is holding the Open Day from 11am-7pm at its college campus in Clash, Tralee.

School leavers, their parents/guardians aswell as those mature people who are considering a return to education/training in order to gain a recognised qualification are welcome to pop in on the day.

Two representatives from SUSI will be available in the college on the day to answer queries regarding grants.

The application system for those wishing to secure an interview for a place at the college is now open online at  and any queries regarding the Open Day or any aspect of what the college offers can be directed to the college office on 066 712 1741.
