Kerry College will hold a live information webinar event tomorrow (Thursday) at 7pm via Zoom and will also be streamed live on the Kerry College YouTube Channel.

The event will feature Kerry College staff Stephen Goulding, Ioseph Nestor, John Herlihy, Elaine O’Connor, Ann Doyle, Joanne Roche and Niamh O’Donovan.

Kerry College offers over 180 full-time courses across its campus locations in Tralee at Monavalley, Clash Road and Denny Street, in Killorglin, and in Listowel.

These courses include: Applied Science, Social Studies, Culinary Arts, Nursing, IT Support, Animation, Music, Computer Game Design, CAD, Engineering, Business, Medical and Office Administration, Healthcare, Pharmacy Sales, Physiotherapy, Outdoor Activity Instructor Training, Sports Nutrition, Pre-Teaching, Pre-Law and Pre-Garda Studies and Pre-PE Teaching amongst others.

New programmes added this year include Cybersecurity and Scuba Diving Instructor.
Places are filling fast across their range of programmes with some courses operating a waiting list. Kerry College offers apprenticeships, courses that link to employment, or courses that open up progression routes to third level.

Kerry College Admissions Officer Niamh O’Donovan is advising school leavers to apply now as there are limited places available on some courses.

“At present, the start date of September 20 remains in place for all of our progression focused courses," she said.

"A number of our courses are already oversubscribed with a wait-list in operation. We have limited spaces in our Business with Marketing/Administration, Medical Administration, Office Administration, Journalism, Computer Design, Sports Nutrition, Early Childhood Care and Education, Healthcare Support and Nursing Studies. Some of these courses will enable you to progress to third level education while others will set you up with job ready skills to move straight into the world of work.”

Kerry College Principal Stephen Goulding is encouraging people to sign up.

“Join us on the 16 at 7pm. Discover the wide variety of courses we offer, get expert advice from our team and hear what college life is like at Kerry College. Afterwards, participants will have the opportunity to arrange One-to-One Sessions where they can get information, advice and guidance from a member of the Kerry College team.”

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
