Written answers (Question to Education)

Officials in my Department have made enquiries with Kerry Education and Training Board (KETB) in relation to this matter.

I understand from KETB that due to the very high demand and learner requirements for this course, an application screening and interview process is required in the selection procedure. There are only 14 places available in each instance of the course and there is no automatic guaranteed place available for any applicant prior to the selection process outlined above. The candidate was unsuccessful on this occasion and has requested feedback from the Training Centre.
