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.
