What Our Students have to say

“After attending Kinsale Further Education College studying Childcare level 5 & 6; I can honestly say my two years there were fantastic.  I finished my level 6 in May 2013, and thankfully I am now studying a Level 7 in Early Years Education @ Cork Institute of Technology. The knowledge I have gained and carried forward with me is invaluable.”

“The Business course I completed there offered a wide range of very practical modules. Having continued on to study Business at C.I.T., I could not recommend the QQI Course highly enough as a preperation / foundation for further study, or for anyone who wishes to up-skill with a view to returning to the workplace.”

“The two years I spent doing the Practical Sustainability Course at Kinsale Further Education College were an amazing experience of learning in new creative ways, with lots of practical experience, an exciting mix of classroom lessons, guest speakers and field trips. The college has a very supportive atmosphere and a great community feeling to it.”
