Module Specific Resources

The following are resources that you may find useful when delivering modules leading to a range of QQI components.

Since Autumn 2015 FESS has engaged the services of experienced teachers and tutors to develop suggested resource lists for a range of modules leading to QQI components at levels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

These lists may be of interest to teachers teaching a module for the first time or teachers looking for new ideas.  It is hoped to continue to upload more resource lists as they become available.

In 2021, QQI validated Early Learning and Care programmes at NFQ levels 5 and 6, for use by the ETB sector in Ireland. Resources that may be useful to those delivering the programme leading to the NFQ level 5 Early Learning and Care award can be accessed here.

For those working in an ETB, you may find additional resources through the ETBI FET Digital Library. This library is intended to provide access to digital resources that support teaching and learning practices and to enhance the educational experience for learners. It offers resources for supporting learning as well as providing a support tool for teachers, trainers, and instructors. It includes sections on traditional academic library topics such as referencing and plagiarism as well more “core” areas such a health & wellbeing and study skills. There is also a resource section which links to free electronic resources that may be useful to FET learners.

Please note: 
On occasion, it may be the case that a resource has been removed/moved online since the resource list was developed. In this case the link contained in the resource list will no longer work.

If you find a broken link, please e-mail resourcelist@fess.ie, indicating the relevant component title and code and the name of the resource for which the link is not working.
FESS will endeavour to find the new link to the relevant resource and update the resource list. 
Where it is not possible to find a new link, FESS will remove reference to this resource from the list.

In the meantime, you may also find it useful to search online for the relevant resource using the title, and in doing that you may find the new link yourself.

NEW!

The RMIT University (Austalia) Language, Literacy & Numeracy in VET resources link to their professional development handbook which demonstrates a number of different strategies to assist teachers to focus more on the language, literacy and numeracy of their courses. The activities demonstrated within it will help students develop language and literacy strategies such as speaking, reading and study skills that will carry them into further learning in educational settings or workplaces.

NALAIntegratingLiteracy This is an updated version of the guide first published by NALA in 2002. 
It is intended as a resource for managers and staff in further education and training centres. 
Guideline 8 in the guide is particularly intended for teachers on vocational and academic courses for adults and young people.

Building Psychological Capital in these Challenging Times and The Importance of Emotional and Social Intelligence for Happiness Success and Wellbeing

These resources have been developed by Jacinta Kitt, lecturer on the M.Ed programme in Trinity College Dublin to support those working in education, in these difficult times.
Each audio presentation is accompanied by a set of slides. Ideally, it would be best to listen to the presentation while viewing the slides and the sequence of the slides corresponds with the presentation material.
The main aim of the presentations is to encourage those listening to reflect on their individual situations and try to find some helpful means of sustaining and enhancing personal wellbeing.

Association for Higher Education Access and Disability (AHEAD) : Teaching and Learning - Making Learning Accessible for Students with Disabilities in Further Education

This guide has been designed to assist teaching staff in further education and training to have a better understanding of the needs of students with disabilities. It describes ways of using principles of Universal Design in the design and delivery of courses so that all students have access to the same learning opportunities. Building accessibility and inclusive practices into the design and delivery of courses will benefit all students and will ensure that further education and training reflects the spirit and requirements of current legislation. Adopting a Universal Design approach will also help to ensure that the inclusion of students with disabilities is embedded into mainstream practice thus reducing the need for specialist supports to be put in place at a later stage

Literacy and Numeracy

FESS has put together a selection of resources that you may find useful in integrating literacy and numeracy across your programmes at all levels. The first section are externally sourced resources and the second section area resource lists developed by practitioners working in the FET environment.

 

NEW!

The RMIT University (Austalia) Language, Literacy & Numeracy in VET resources link to their professional development handbook which demonstrates a number of different strategies to assist teachers to focus more on the language, literacy and numeracy of their courses. The activities demonstrated within it will help students develop language and literacy strategies such as speaking, reading and study skills that will carry them into further learning in educational settings or workplaces.

NALAIntegratingLiteracy This is an updated version of the guide first published by NALA in 2002.
It is intended as a resource for managers and staff in further education and training centres.
Guideline 8 in the guide is particularly intended for teachers on vocational and academic courses for adults and young people.
