Resource List Development Initiative - Phase 5

Resource List Development Initiative - Phase 5

Following the success of the phase 1, phase 2, phase 3 and phase 4 'Resource Lists' that were developed by FET teachers and trainers, FESS would like to announce phase 5 of the development.

In response to requests from the sector this current call is for potential writers of resource lists for level 1.

This round, phase 5, of resource list development is targeted at level 1 only, as this is the level for which resource lists have not yet been developed. Given the credit value / volume of the NFQ Level 1 Awards leading to QQI certification it is possible to develop a resource list to cover content for more than one level 1 component.  Therefore we will consider applications for resource list development in the following field areas, specifically related to programmes at level 1.

  • Literacy / Communications
  • Numeracy
  • Personal Skills and Development
  • Other field areas in which certification is being achieved at Level 1.

The related level 1 components must be indicated in the completed resource list application form.

The application form below should be submitted by teachers/tutors/trainers who may be interested in getting involved in writing the resource lists:

Applications must be submitted to resourcelist@fess.ie only, no other email address should be used. 

Deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 2 February 2018 at 17.00.

It is expected that writers will spend the equivalent of 2 full days (12 hours) working on each resource list in their own time.  Payment is €203.16 per day i.e. €406.32 per completed resource list.

All resource list writing must be completed and submitted on or before Monday 12 March 2018 at 17.00.
