Kilkenny students given chance to swot up on life after leaving cert
This is a busy week for Kilkenny students thinking of moving onto higher education as most of the third level institutions are hosting their open days.
To help the close to 1,000 students in Kilkenny who will pursue a college course next Autumn, an initiative called College Awareness Week has been put together by Ireland’s third-level institutions in addition to the open days provided by the colleges.
College Awareness Week celebrates the benefits of going to college, it supports students to become ‘college ready’ and showcases local role models attending college.
Three College Awareness Week events will be held in Kilkenny over the coming days.
Kilkenny City Vocational School is hosting a ‘Raising Awareness of Options after Secondary School’ event throughout the week. Students will get to explore all options post-secondary school, including apprenticeships and post-leaving certificate courses.
Students in Grennan College, Thomastown, will hear a talk from role models attending University College Cork called ‘Why Study Arts?’
While tomorrow, in Duiske College, Graiguenamanagh, an all-day study skills workshop takes place.
