2021 FET News

Euro-Quest, a free online, classroom based resource, promoting educational mobility, for use with Transition Year students in Ireland was formally launched in March 2020. Over the course of the past 18 months hundreds of students from TY classes all around the country have enrolled and we are delighted with the positive feedback we have received so far. During the course of the Summer, NCGE/Euroguidance Ireland made some requested technical changes to the online platform, making it even simpler to navigate and allowing you better track the progress of your students.
