Course checklist for 6th years

A helpful post from careersnews.ie...
Where are you with the whole process of choosing the course you will be doing after the Leaving Cert?

Sometimes Course Choice can be a rushed affair and several important things can be overlooked.

Take a few minutes on this check list and see if there is more work you need to do on each of your course choices.  If something needs to be done then the sooner you get it done the better.

It can help to consult with your Guidance Counsellor. Change of mind opens Friday, May 5th. If anyone needs an appointment please arrange one.
This is a little quiz to help you out. Click here ...
