“This MOU builds on years of effective collaboration between us and IT Tralee,” said CEO of Kerry ETB, Colm McEvoy.

“It means that people from Kerry can access a full suite of education and training programmes in their local area and for many courses there is a direct progression opportunity between ETB and ITT programmes,” he said.

The MOU commits the two institutions to work cooperatively to deliver education and training provision to the people of Kerry and beyond. Since the first MOU between the two organisations significant progress has been made in a range of areas.

A course progression document has been developed to map progression routes between Kerry ETB courses and ITT courses.

Joint initiatives were developed including; a Directory of Education and Training Programmes in Kerry, the development of Kerry Music Education Partnership, Future Skills research, school based projects were progressed including; Project Maths, ICT, sports and leisure, and science.

The ITT host the annual Kerry ETB Student Awards event. The ITT has also provided in-service training in ICT and Digital media for teachers and school leaders. Kerry ETB, through Cappanalea Outdoor Education and Training Centre delivers modules to Wildlife Biology and Health and Leisure students in Outdoor Education.

Cappanalea OETC also works closely with the Cara Centre in the provision of Campabilities and adapted physical activities.

The current and future Strategic Plans of both organisations identify their mutual commitment to continue establishing links and partnerships to achieve their individual and collective strategic goals. Both organisations aim to maximise the access, transfer and progression opportunities for all learners.
