INOU Training Room
The INOU is registered with FETAC (Further Education and Training Awards Council) to offer programmes leading to FETAC awards in the National Framework of Qualifications and has agreed its quality assurance procedures with FETAC.
Achieving a FETAC qualification provided by the INOU will create greater awareness and knowledge around welfare rights issues and the impact of unemployment on a person's ability to participate fully and equally in society
As a FETAC accredited provider we are in the unique position of having a wealth of knowledge and experience of welfare rights issues whilst also being able to provide relevant training in this area.
