IADT are very aware that the Leaving Certificate Group of 2020 are particularly affected by the current situation and have been working hard to ensure that their application procedures can continue whilst ensuring that we are complying fully with Government guidelines and Public Health advice.
Given the current restrictions it is unlikely that IADT will be able to assess a physical portfolio submission before May. As a result, we have prepared an alternative submission platform for our CAO applicants. Our new Digital Portfolio Submission platform (https://www.iadt.ie/study/portfolio-guidelines is now live and we have let applicants know that we have extended the submission period to 24th April 2020.
We have also produced a guide for applicants
https://www.iadt.ie/content/files/IADT_Digital_Portfolio_2020_WEB.pdf to help them prepare their submission.
By submitting digitally applicants are helping IADT maintain effective levels of “social distancing” and reduce the need for staff and applicants to congregate on campus.
IADT’s priority at this time is the safety and well being of students and we hope that this new procedure and related guidelines will be helpful in this regard.

New website for Geography, Maths & Business RevisionNew website for Geography, Maths & Business Revision
Our new website https://www.examrevision.ie/ launched today so just wanted to give everyone the heads up in case you wanted to use any of the resources with Geography, Maths or Business students or share with colleagues/students in other schools.
The website has video tutorials, self-correcting quizzes, PowerPoint presentations, a progress checker, a reflection log and an exam builder for the 3 subjects.
We were due to launch the new website later in the year when we had all the Leaving Cert content finished but we decided to rush it through given the current situation so some parts are still in development – bear with us.
