Ireland - Self-assessment

Killester College of Further Education, a College of the City of Dublin Vocational Education Committee provides initial VET courses to students who have left compulsory education, adults returning to education, students with disabilities and/or special education needs and international students. Its approach to inclusion has meant it is the first educational institution in Ireland to have achieved the “Excellence through Accessibility” award from the National Disability Authority.

At the heart of all its activities is a person-centred approach to learning which recognises the importance of finding bespoke solutions for individual learners. Alongside an initial assessment of needs, a range of teaching and assessment methods help to ensure all learners achieve the best they can. This inclusive approach has led to significant improvements in participation and completion as well as academic success in terms of achievement.

This case study focuses on IVET and adult basic education
