As we are fast approaching the end of the academic year I would like to bring to your attention details of Waterford Institute of Technology’s Maths Entry Scheme 2017.
The scheme is designed to assist students who have not achieved the required grade in maths for entry into WIT. The process provides a “second chance” for students to achieve that grade by attempting a paper comparable to the leaving certificate ordinary level paper.
Candidates who apply to sit the examination at WIT, and if they achieve the designated grade specific to their chosen programme of study, will be offered a place (subject to numbers) as a CAO Round 4 offer in September 2017. The scheme does not provide any additional points to the total leaving certificate score.
Further details about WIT’s Maths Entry Scheme 2017 are available at www.wit.ie/mathsentry . Please note that application forms must be completed and returned on or before 12pm, Thursday 24 August 2017. I would greatly appreciate if you could bring the above information to the attention of your colleagues, students and their parents.
The CAO website has been updated with the two documents listed below.
The Qualifying Exams document is now on the website under ‘Important Dates’. Intended for applicants who are otherwise eligible but have not met the maths requirement.
The QQI FET/FETAC Nursing Quota 2017 document is in the usual place under ‘Student Resources’.
Applications for 2017/18 remain openInterviews will take place on Wednesday 31 May.
Do you like to travel, design a garden, take care of horses, or work in a busy pharmacy, hairdressers, or even a legal or medical office? If so, then Dunboyne College just might have the course for you. We are delighted to let you know we are starting five new courses for next September 2017:

Liberties College Interviews Tuesday May 23rd - 9.00 to 4.00
Dear Guidance Counsellor, I just want to draw your attention to our interview day next Tuesday 23rd May. There are still places available on most of our courses and students may wish to ensure that they have a plan B if their CAO choices don't work out. We have Liberal Arts, Access to university which allows for progression to Arts and Social Sciences degrees in third level. I would also encourage you to bring to the attention of your students, the Trinity Access Programme which is run in collaboration with Trinity College, Dublin. This is particularly relevant for students who are HEAR eligible. Further many students who are unsure of which career direction they wish to follow, choose a PLC course as a way of 'dipping their toe' in the vocational sector before embarking on a 3 or 4 year degree programme.
This September we will be running a new course, Retail Pharmacy Assistant which is proving very popular. Details of the above and all our courses and application can be made on our website, www.libertiescollege.ie.
