Now that the first deadline for the CAO has passed, the next area of focus in schools, and indeed for adults who are interested in accessing education, is the further education (FE) sector, also known as PLCs. Post-Leaving Cert courses can provide an alternative route to college and a means of exploring a particular field of study. They are also a means of upskilling in a particular area or a direct route into employment. All courses teach research skills, self-directed learning, and computer skills. Many school leavers use these courses to help them with future career choices.
One of the many options outside of CAO is the apprenticeship route and one of the old reliables, the ESB Networks Apprenticeship Programme, is now open for applications.
This Saturday January 20 marks the first of the CAO deadlines this year. Applicants are offered a discounted rate of €30 to register until then. After that, the application fee increases to €45 until February 1. It is advisable to register immediately if you have not done so already.

Students who are seeking to enter programmes in a wide range of disciplines, in systems where entry requirements are low, need to make those big decisions soon.
