AROUND 190 students gathered from the different National Learning Network’s classes scattered around Tralee, to receive certificates for their achievements over the last year in the Fels Point Hotel on Friday.

A year’s hard work came to fruition for the students from the National Learning Network’s two centres in Tralee – in Clash Industrial Estate and a satellite service in the Education Centre in Dromtacker – as well as a retail training outlet in Kerry General Hospital.

The Guest of Honour was a hit with those in attendance.

“I’m delighted to be here to present you all with your certificates as I have a great interest in education. As the Irish saying goes ‘Ní neart go cur le chéile’ – there is no strength without unity. You aren’t on your own,” said broadcasting legend, Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh.

Students were presented with certificates in a range of courses that support people in entering into or returning to employment.

These include vocational courses such as Applied Information Technology, Catering Skills & Culinary Skills, Retail Sales, Sporting Chance, Woodwork Multi Skills, IT/Business Studies, Introductory Skills Training, Employer Based Training, as well as rehabilitative programmes Focus and Directions.

Each year, students from the centre receive a variety of QQI (formally FETAC) levels 3 to 6, ITEC, City & Guilds, ECDL, Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certificates following participation in a National Learning Network course.

National Learning Network provides training funded by SOLAS and the HSE for persons out of work through accident, illness, or disability.
