The City of Cork Vocational Education Committee (CCVEC) is the 4th largest of the 33 Vocational Education Committees in the country. Although its administrative area is confined to the city boundary, the CCVEC provides an educational service to students from all parts of the surrounding counties.
The CCVEC is responsible for 6 schools/colleges and 5 other education centres located throughout the city. The CCVEC provides a wide range of courses at second-level for the younger generation leaving the primary schools. It makes available full-time day courses leading to junior certificate, leaving certificate and repeat leaving certificate.
The CCVEC offers courses at post-leaving certificate level in 5 of its colleges, including courses in equestrian studies, soccer education & coaching, coach education, leisure & recreation management and sport & exercise science. Other course areas include commerce, community services, construction, craft and design, electrics/electronics, engineering, horticulture, drama, music, animal care, science and secretarial services. A very strong link has been developed with industry as these courses are job-related and have work experience as an integral part of their programmes.
The CCVEC offers an extensive range of adult education courses to people of all ages for leisure, career improvement, and self-development. Information on adult education courses is available, either from the Colleges or from our Website www.corkvec.ie.
Youthreach caters for early school leavers (15 to 18 year olds) and provides education, training and work experience over a period of two years.
The CCVEC also provides an adult literacy and community education service throughout the city and a wide range of support services which include the provision of an education service to Cork Prison, the provision of education programmes in co-operation with institutions such as Community Training Workshops and the provision of programmes and services to young people in the City through its Youth Services Board.
Legislation is currently going through the Dáil which will see the merger of the City and County Vocational Education Committees with the FÁS Training Centre in Rossa Avenue into a new entity, the Cork Local Education and Training Board. This new entity will have a wider remit in the support of education provision in the entire Cork region.
The Committee owns a site at Farranlea Road. The site is approximately 6 2/3 acres in area, comprising of a playing pitch and a wooded rise to the south.
It is bounded to the north by Farranlea Road, to the east by a new Health facility and to the south and west by domestic dwellings. The boundaries consist of a high concrete wall abutting Farranlea Road and fences/trees/shrubs on the other three sides. There is an existing building in the north-west corner of the site, approximately 65 sq. m., used as changing rooms but in poor condition.
A drawing of the site is attached for reference purposes only; all measurements should be checked on-site.
Arrangements for viewing the site can be made by contacting Ms Helen Ryan, Principal, Cork College of Commerce.

The City of Cork wishes to develop All Weather Sporting and ancillary facilities at its Sports Ground at Farranlea Road in conjunction with a sporting club or organisation.
It is envisaged that ownership of the land will remain vested in the City of Cork VEC but that the organisation developing the facilities will be granted a long-term sharing arrangement for the use of the grounds. Usage of the facilities will be shared between the VEC and the developing organisation.
In relation to sharing arrangements, the Committee would envisage that its usage would be mainly during the day, with occasional week-end usage, allowing the club/organisation full evening/night and most week-ends usage, the exact details to be finalised in any agreement entered into.
The developing organisation will be responsible for all costs in relation to the development of the facilities and on-going operation of the facilities, including, but not confined to, site preparation costs, development costs, site information (e.g. levels, ground conditions, soil survey, existing services, etc.), Planning & Development costs and charges, professional fees, legal costs, insurance.
The developing organisation will employ qualified professionals at all stages of the development.
