Kilkenny & Carlow Education & Training Board provides further education and training across the two counties, providing a diverse range of learning across subjects such as Performing Arts, Security studies, Fine Art, Professional Sports Fitness Instruction and Professional Cookery.
Further education and training predominantly takes place in the buzzing towns of Kilkenny and Carlow, both vibrant towns with active arts, culture and nightlife scenes, attracting learners from the local area, nationally and internationally.
Carlow Institute of Further Education has a soon to be opened, band-new campus with ‘Realistic Working Environments’ designed to professional standards, with real-world equipment. Workplace standard facilities include Music Performance Studios, Recording Studios, Science Labs, Animal Care Studios, Horticulture Greenhouse and a Hair & Beauty Therapy Suite so that learners can get real experience ahead of employment or progression to higher education.
In Kilkenny, the beautiful Ormond College sits on a historic site - overlooked by the centuries old walls of Kilkenny where learners can choose from the largest range of post-leaving certificate courses in the County.
