What are your interests?



Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Posted on December 12, 2018
Kerry College of Further Education (KCFE) is still offering limited places for leaving certificate students, mature students wishing to return to college, and those wishing to up-skill and change career direction.

With two campuses now in Tralee, KCFE offers a wide range of courses to facilitate progression to third level colleges and to qualify students with work ready skills.

Wide Range of Courses

Courses in Business and Technology, Administration, Medical and Legal, Beauty, Carers, Emergency Care Skills, Pharmacy Assistant, Pre-University Law, Pre-Garda, Applied Science and Food Nutrition, Engineering, Hotel and Catering and Professional Cookery are among those on offer.

Not Too Late

It is not too late to apply, according to Mary Lucey, Principal of KCFE, as the college will do its very best to facilitate any applications that are now submitted.

This will ensure that a student will not be disappointed in securing a place and may still start on the road to a successful career this month.

Anxious Students

Ms. Lucey said that already she is dealing with queries from anxious students who have commenced third level programmes in universities and institutes of technology throughout the country and may already feel they are on the incorrect course or are struggling with the transition.

Test the Waters

KCFE may be the solution in this instance enabling students to test the waters in an area of interest in a supported environment.
