Final FETAC Assessments

The Art Department is buzzing as the end of year FETAC assessments upon us . For many students FETAC assessments are essential for progression to 3rd Level as the results convert to points that can be used for college entry.

The Art and Fashion courses are continually assessed throughout the year but all the work must be honed, perfected and presented for the final deadline. Students use check lists to make sure all the componants are in place for the assessments and with between 8 and 10 modules on each course there is lots to do!

The years hard work is coming to an end but there is still plenty to do as students prepare for the end of year Art exhibition and Fashion show. Photography workshops and finishing touches will keep everyone busy right up to the end of the year.


The fashion students have been working on their final pieces for their embroidery module with some spectacular results!
