Tipperary ETB’s (TETB) courses are delivered by suitably qualified staff who are recruited in line with TETB’s HR protocols. Currently, TETB is updating its staff recruitment policies and procedures that will be managed by our HR Department in line with nationally agreed policies and procedures.
Professional Development (PD)
TETB takes a proactive approach in encouraging and facilitating FET teaching staff to participate in professional development activities in order to update skills, strengthen competencies and collaborate with professional colleagues.
Some of the professional development opportunities include PD delivered by the Further Education Support Service (FESS), access for staff to e-college courses, along with other developmental opportunities encouraged via membership of National Associations, Fora, working and technical groups.
