Career Guidance

Career Guidance

Career development and investigation is vocational in nature and is introduced at Junior Cycle through focused Wellbeing modules and is mainly concentrated at Senior Cycle through timetabled career classes amongst a range of whole school initiatives

It involves empowering students to recognise their talents and abilities so as to enable them to make informed choices and take responsibility for their own futures.

Programmes such as TY and LCA have a dedicated vocational element timetabled within their respective programmes.

In Scoil Chríost Rí, 5th and 6th year students follow the careers programme for the duration of senior cycle.

Career development includes areas such as:

  • Development of self-awareness,
  • Employment opportunities,
  • Employment rights and duties,
  • Personal vocational guidance interviews,
  • Organisation of career talks,
  • Career and college fair,
  • Mentoring,
  • Speed careers,
  • Career research and career / course information,
  • Decision and planning skills,
  • Use of ICT e.g. Qualifax,
  • Vocational education and training,
  • Further education,
  • Job opportunities,
  • Job and interview preparation.

A strong emphasis in the final year of school is also directed to pathways of further education including third level course/career progression with CAO, PLC and apprentice applications.
