CAREER GUIDANCE & EDUCATIONAL PLANNING WORKSHOP 2019 (3rd yr & Transition yr Students Only)
Are you in Transition Year and want to choose your Leaving Certificate Subjects for 5th Year?
Students at Junior Cert. and Transition Year levels normally select their Leaving Certificate Subjects during the Spring term before 5th Year. The range of courses and colleges available can be overwhelming to young students. 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 Career Guidance workshops help you navigate your way through the maze of course options and requirements, and also help you match your goals with appropriate 3rd level courses:
– Tap into your natural intelligence
– Use these skills in subjects and a career you love, identified by the Career Assessment System
– Plan the development of your career in terms of further training and education
CTA career workshops aim to support young people in exploring their career options and making informed decisions about subject choices, higher education, alternative pathways and future employment. Interestingly one Higher Education Authority study shows that almost one-in-six students drop out of all third-level courses before 2nd Year. To this end it is essential that students receive appropriate career guidance as early on in the process as is possible before they set out on a career pathway.
With such high drop-out rates, it is important that a student has as much information as possible, before making that final decision. This is a critical choice, and students who have made poor subject choices at this stage, often find that many college options are closed to them at a later stage. Students must be mindful of such things as subject entry requirements for 3rd level, and must also carefully consider the subjects they need to support their future 3rd level studies.
CTA Career Guidance workshops place great emphasis on the significance of choosing Senior Cycle Subjects, and highly recommend that all students making Senior Cycle Choices take advice and guidance at an early stage. Our assessment is based around the principles of matching a student’s Interests and Abilities.
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!
