Congratulations to the Leaving Certificate Class of 2015!

August 12, 2015

Welcome to the next stage of your educational journey

Some students will be clear about what they want from today’s Leaving Certificate Results.  Many will go directly to university and accept their CAO offer next Monday. Others have already chosen a PLC courses in their area of interest. Many more will be unsure what their next step should be. If you are unsure of your next step why not contact your local College of Further Education and speak to the Principal. While many courses are fully subscribed vacancies often occur when the dust settles.

Students who choose a PLC course do so because they discover it most closely meets their area of interest. That might be in Technology, Science, Business Studies, Computing, Sport, Mountain Leadership, Drama, Media, Catering, Beauty – the range is wide and surprising.

Other reasons students choose PLC courses include:

• They want a job
• They want to explore their choice of career further before committing to, for example, a four year degree path.
• They want to explore a new subject area.
• They want to study as locally as possible.
• They want a cost effective course.
• They want more emphasis on the practical
• They want immediate work experience
• They want to explore an alternative route to third level

CDETB has 16 colleges across the city offering over 7,000 places on a choice of over 400 courses at FETAC 5&6 ranging, A-Z, from Access Courses to Higher Education to Youth Studies and Community Work. Our colleges have developed enduring relationships with employers and our courses constantly adapt to reflect the skills needs in the marketplace.
