Teagasc is the agriculture and food development authority in Ireland and is the main provider of further education in agriculture, food, horticulture, forestry and equine studies in Ireland. It provides courses in seven colleges, three of which are in private ownership. During these inspections we evaluate the quality of the education and training provision in those colleges. The inspection reports on lessons observed in a range of learning settings in the college, interaction with students and review of their work, meetings with the principal, with key staff members and with student representatives, completed staff questionnaires, and a selection of college documents. Teagasc and the college management are given an opportunity to comment in writing on the findings and recommendations of the report, and their response will be found in the appendix of the report.
