This free app benefits students from deeper insights into their skills, interests and future pathways (third level courses, apprenticeships, internships, TY work experience options etc.) You can check out our website for more details on the benefits to students and schools of using the Exit Entry APP.
In the current Covid-19 environment, which is proving so stressful for students, teachers and parents, we believe that the Exit Entry APP will provide valuable insights to all students, particularly Leaving Certificate students, as they think through their future choices. And to show solidarity with Leaving Certificate students, and their parents, we are delighted to announce that all Leaving Certificate students in Ireland, who are entering third level education, will be eligible to enter a FREE competition to win €10,000 worth of accommodation for one lucky student!
To that end, we thought that it would be useful to provide you with some material which you may wish to share with your students, teachers, guidance counsellors and parent bodies. This information could also be shared on your school website, newsletter or school APP.
