What an experience for the Kerry College of Education Students this week when Garda Aidan O Mahoney and his colleagues were in the KCFE Clash Campus for their inaugural session with the Pre-Garda Studies Students. This programme is aimed at those who wish to apply to pursue a career with the Gardai Siochana, and what is ultimately unique is the support that the Tralee Division have agreed to provide to KCFE students to ensure the learner will gain a real life insight to what it takes to be a member of the Garda Siochana and the diversification of roles and range of specialisms within the force.
Principal Mary Lucey said “students at times are attracted to the glamorous side of the career portrayed by the media and do not fully realise the depth of the role. By completing this programme, the learner will not only have a knowledge of Criminal Law, Business Law, Legal Practice and Procedures, Health & Safety, Criminology, Conflict Resolution, but will have completed sessions with members of the force and will have visited the Garda College in Templemore and more. They will be in a very advantageous position if they are suitably qualified to apply for Garda College in Templemore.”
