A recent National Student Survey carried out by campus.ie highlighted that 50% of Irish students had considered dropping out of their course, and 30% would change their CAO forms if they had a chance.
As it stands in Ireland, one-in-six students drop out of their chosen college course feeling disillusioned about their career path and uncertain about their future. This can deal a major blow to their self-esteem, not to mention the financial blow to parents who are paying the tuition fees.
Most career advice in Ireland has a rather narrow focus when helping teens decide which college course to choose, but Dearbhla Kelly's Career Coach is different. By looking at the bigger picture – who they are and what they are good at – Career Coach teaches parents ways to identify abilities, skills and talents in their teenager, as well as their innate passions and values, to realise their full potential.
Experienced and inspirational career guidance counsellor, Dearbhla will empower parents to motivate and encourage their teenagers towards their future life dreams.
Career Coach is invaluable for parents of teenagers starting secondary school, selecting subjects after transition year, filling out CAO forms and preparing for their Leaving Certificate results.
