Throughout the week students engaged in a wide variety of talks and activities organised by the Careers Department. There was a display organised by the Transition Years in the Entrance Hall. Students could talk to the Transition Years and get information on the many colleges and courses in Ireland.
Outside each classrooms is a small poster indicating what and where the classroom teacher studied. Students are always amazed at the varied options and pathways into teaching. On our staff we have teachers who qualified and worked in other areas before deciding to become a teacher. This expertise and experience is of great benefit to the students and the school.
On Tuesday Fifth and Sixth Years visited the Dolmon for the Careers Seminar. This was both informative and enjoyable.
On Thursday all teachers spent the last fifteen minutes before break talking to students about their own college experience. The topics included what the teacher had studied and where, their experiences of college, as well as tips and advice around college life, tutorials, choosing modules and assignments and exams. This happens each year.
On Friday our Transition Year students were brought to WIT to learn about the facilities at the college.
