A number of informational events have been taking place in the CBS to assist Leaving Cert students in advance of their CAO applications. On Monday 25th Nov, Grainne Dunne, Schools Liaison Officer with NUI Galway spoke to all Leaving Certs about the College courses and scholarship opportunities available there. The talk also covered information about the ‘Special Maths’ examination for students not currently studying Higher Level Maths but wishing to enter courses with this requirement.
Seamus Keane of GRETB Solas Apprenticeships also met with students on that day to outline the nature of the apprenticeship routes and the variety of new apprenticeships that are now available to students. We have an increasing number of students wishing to pursue the Apprenticeship route post Leaving Certificate and this talk was highly engaging for students. The programme of Career Guidance events will continue over the coming months and we wish to thank Mr O’Doherty for his work in co-ordinating and organising these.
