County Carlow Chamber congratulates the 58, 000 students who are receiving Leaving Certificate results today (16 August 2017).
Brian O’Farrell, CEO of County Carlow Chamber said, “Leaving Certificate results day is very important for so many young people, with so much work and effort invested in the results they will receive today. We wish all students the best of luck as they begin on the pathway towards their future career, and would would encourage them to review all options available to achieving the skills and expertise in their chosen career path. ”
We are very luck in Carlow to have some of the best facilities and options available to help students continue along their chosen career path. Third level education is an important route for many students. However, due to recent Government investment there has been a significant increase in the apprenticeship and training options available to post-Leaving Certificate students. We encourage students to consider apprenticeship training and the range of new options available in many sectors.”
“We would like to remind employers of the changes to the Leaving Certificate grading system and to take this into account when considering job applications from school leavers.”
