One-to-One Career Guidance
Students are encouraged to make as many ‘one-to-one’ appointments as they need. At these meetings we explore career opportunities and discuss the student’s aspirations for third-level education. Our aim is to help our students make informed decisions about their future career and life. Parents and guardians are invited to participate in these meetings if they wish.
We help students develop interview skills and techniques for specific college courses.
Assistance is provided in completing college application forms, finalising references etc.
Personality & Aptitude Profiling
We offer all students the opportunity to do a ‘Centigrade Interest Test’ in our Computer Room. If a student is still deciding what career path they are interested in, this is an excellent place to start.
We are available to meet with students to talk about any issue that might be affecting them throughout the year (settling into school, stress, mental health etc.)
A series of CAO talks take place during November, December and January each year. Students are encouraged to attend one of these talks, which are intended to demystify the CAO application process and answer any questions students may have in advance of making their college application in February.
Our annual career fair takes place each October. This event provides students the opportunity to gain a real insight into third-level options and possible future careers. The fair offers students the opportunity to meet representatives from some of Ireland’s leading colleges and universities, who can provide the latest information on courses and admission requirements. Experts from a range of industries will also give as series of talks that will focus on potential careers and third-level course options.
