This year we are offering three FETAC accredited courses: Special Needs Housing Management which was launched in 2005, Housing Finance and Development which has been running since 2004 and our longest established course, Housing Management which is now in its 17th year.
These courses are run in association with National College of Ireland. They are accredited by FETAC and are mapped to the National Framework of Qualifications.
Each course will be delivered over five months, two full days each month from February to June 2012 and successful participants of our courses will receive a Level 6 FETAC minor award. These component certicicates allow course participants to build up credits and potentially access higher educational opportunities which is in line with the national objective of creating a "lifelong learning society".
Our 2012 Education and Training Programme also encompasses a wide range of shorter one-day Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Seminars. These seminars will focus on the key issues facing housing providers in these challenging times and will provide the most up-to-date information and guidance on the issues.
