Deciding on a career is one of the biggest and most important decisions a student will ever make. A students chosen career path will have far reaching consequences for their well-being and success throughout life. With the increasing availability of higher education options today in addition to increased competition for third level places, making good, wise, informed decisions based on specific guidance as early on in the process as possible becomes even more important. Selecting the “right” third level course is a major life decision to make, and always poses a challenge. Unwise career decisions can have far reaching consequences. Recent studies have shown that about one-in-six students end up dropping out of their chosen third-level course before their 2nd Year. This only solidifies the need for expert guidance prior to making such important life decisions.
Clonmel Tuition Academy works closely in partnership with CareerGuidance.ie to run focused Career Guidance workshops throughout the academic year for 3rd yr/ TY/5th & 6th Year students. These workshops aim to support students in deciding the best most suitable career options for them and thus aid them in making informed decisions about second and third level subject choices, higher education institutions, alternative pathways and future employment.
In line with the workshops, CTA offers psychometric profiling designed to identify the students abilities, aptitudes, personality traits, interests and values. These assessments can be completed online prior to the workshop and each takes about 15 minutes to complete. This information is vital in determining the right path forward for the student and furthermore aids the student in achieving a higher degree of self-awareness and understanding thus enabling them to make the right choices when deciding on a career, either further education or employment. All of the assessments can be completed in the students’ own time, online and are assessed by CTA Career Guidance experts. The results will be made available prior to the workshop, thus maximising the time spent at the workshop!
