Introduction

We are pleased to present the new Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board FET Division Strategic Framework 2022 – 2025, which will be delivered through our multi-campus College of Further Education and Training.

This planning process has benefited from a rich local, national and European policy context, and reflects the ETB’s new Strategy Statement 2022 – 2026, as well as Future FET: Transforming Learning, the national SOLAS FET Strategy for the period 2020 – 2024, and European priorities outlined in Europe 2030. It also reflects the recommendations from a recent and comprehensive evaluation of our quality assurance processes, as part of the Inaugural Review of Quality Assurance for ETBs. These were key markers for discussions during the planning process.

Priorities and
Implementation
Mapping

This is about recognising that each learner is unique and bring their own circumstances, strengths, needs, skills, past experiences and aspirations when they join FET. Our priority is to do right by all our learners.
Placing learners at the centre of everything we do means listening to their perspectives to enhance the teaching and learning environments and outcomes, respond to their needs, and empower them to fulfil their potential.
