Careers

Our career guidance service is all about helping our pupils to make the best choices for their future.  We work with students, parents/guardians and teachers to provide the best possible advice for each pupil.

The aims of the guidance service are as follows:

  • Provide current information to students on careers/education.
  • To teach students how to evaluate and manage career information.
  • Attend Open Days and organise seminars to prepare students for the transition from school to work/further education.
  • Encourage students to reach their maximum potential.

 

When considering further education and careers, our specialist service ensures that each pupil is aware of the deaf supports available and provides assistance to access these services.

The full-time career guidance teacher is available to every pupil and the service is equipped up-to-date computer software and a full careers library.

An integral part of the careers service is forging links with the relevant agencies such as:

  • AHEAD
  • Centre for Deaf Studies
  • DeafHear
  • Institute of Guidance Counsellors
  • QQI
  • CAO
  • Solas
  • HSE

Open Days and Career Talks

Our students are encouraged to attend College Open Days at all major third level colleges and universities.  We try to ensure that Sign Language Interpreters and Access Officers are available on these days for our pupils.  Students also attend career exhibitions organised by Solas and NLN.

We regularly host representatives from Solas, Colleges and Advocacy groups at the school to give our students an opportunity to ask questions and voice their particular concerns in an informal setting.
