MANY top businesses and universities were on hand to guide students during College Awareness Week at St Dominic’s Secondary School in Ballyfermot.
From Monday to Friday, students have been enjoying a variety of different insights, from Trinity College to Diageo, from DPS Engineering to Ballyfermot College of Further Education.
A career expo was held on Wednesday, whilst on Friday (November 25), there was a mingle morning which featured a wide range of businesses including AIB, Grant Thornton, local solicitors and Allianz Mentoring.
College Awareness Week aims to inspire and inform students of all backgrounds about the importance of having a post-secondary education plan.
Since its inception in 2014, the week has been a runaway success, with over 1,000 events being held in this year at campuses across the country.
College Awareness Week is supported by the Higher Education Authority, the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals, SOLAS – the Further Education and Training Authority, IBEC, the Institute of Guidance Counsellors and the Trinity Access Programme.
