Foreword
Cork Education and Training Board (CETB) was formed in
2013 through the integration of the Cork City and County
Cork VEC’s and in January 2014, what was Fás training
in Cork came under the remit of Cork ETB. For the first
time ever, further education and training (FET) became
part of a single, coherent integrated structure. Cork ETB’s
FET services (FET CORK) sit alongside our primary and
post primary services in providing high quality education
and training services which are innovative, responsive and
inclusive. Through Cork ETB there is a pathway for every
learner.

FET Cork is tasked by SOLAS to provide high quality FET
programmes which are responsive to the needs of learners
and the requirements of a changed and changing economy.
Through the varied and diverse programmes and courses
delivered by the colleges and centres that operate under
FET Cork, learners are provided with education and training
opportunities that are designed specifically to provide the
skills and competencies necessary and required to access
the world of work, or to progress on to further studies.
Our courses are recognised and certified by nationally and
internationally recognised awarding bodies, with graduates
highly valued by employers and with direct access links from
many courses into Higher education courses in Universities
and Institutes of Technology, both in Ireland and abroad.
Learners engaging with FET Cork programmes reflect the
fullness of Irish society, in terms of age, experience, gender,
ethnicity and so much more. Participation on a FET Cork
programme is designed to develop the skills, knowledge
and understanding of the individual in an environment
that is supportive and encouraging, where differences and
diversity are recognised and respected. School leavers,
mature learners, learners with a disability and learners who
have come to Ireland to make it their home are welcomed,
supported and encouraged to participate and engage with
our programmes.

Presented in this prospectus are a range of full time
programmes offered by Cork College of Commerce. Within
the diversity of programmes offered I am sure that you will
find something that will provide you with the foundation
and impetus to take the next step in your learning
journey, and that you will have an experience built on our
commitment to high quality teaching and learning in a
supportive environment that will expand your horizons and
provide new opportunities for your future.
