This interactive Career Guidance Camp presents a thematic focus on career opportunities in the area of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, as well as a broader focus on career planning after secondary school. It allows participants to explore courses, pathways and career possibilities. Participants will be better informed and will be able to critically examine the different subject combinations and to understand major and minor course offerings in these subject areas.
We break down college terminology and look at specific opportunities that can enhance an Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences course of study. We investigate the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) looking at how all learning achievements may be measured and related to each other. We make reference to the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE), the Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) & scholarships, how they can help students, and how to apply. We delve into the CAO application process looking at requirements, points, offers, acceptances and deferrals. We encourage participants to engage and seek clarification.
*Participants have the option to learn about the UCAS and European application process, should they be interested in travelling outside of Ireland to engage with a course of study. These sessions are optional and there is no extra cost.
A variety of teaching methodologies are used to maintain student engagement and participation during each session.
Each lesson contains a structured PowerPoint with learning intentions, specific content and embedded assessment pieces. We share insightful case studies and stories with participants, by showing them the exciting range of careers that are available.
