As the Central Admissions Office (CAO ) deadline looms, students and their families are invited to a free Live Webinar / Webinar Beo with renowned careers expert, Brian Mooney.
‘What Students Need To Know / Eolas rí-thábhachtach do mhic léinn’ is the title of the event which will be streamed live on the Mayo.ie Facebook page on Wednesday, January 13, at 7pm.
"We are holding this event to help students, parents and guardians as they make their all-important CAO choices," said Pat Howley, Chairperson, Mayo Local Community Development Committee (LCDC ) Education & Training Working Group, the organisers of the event.
"Brian Mooney is an Irish Times education columnist and a guidance counsellor with many years’ experience, and we are delighted that he will be on hand to dispense his wisdom.
The webinar replaces the annual Mayo Careers Fair which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The purpose of the webinar is to arm students and families with key information on the various options available to them upon completing their second-level education. Admission is free of charge.
The event is supported by Mayo County Council/Mayo.ie; MSLETB; the HSE; Mayo Local Employment Services; Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP ); GMIT; Údarás na Gaeltachta; South West Mayo Development Company; Mayo North East LEADER Partnership; and Mayo Sports Partnership.
