We are overwhelmed and grateful for your input into our son’s future

I want to thank you for meeting our son. You were so open and welcoming to Traolach on our arrival which relaxed him and allowed him to fully engage with you. As you know he was in a bad place at the time but thanks to your empathy and enthusiasm he has made huge progress and continues each day. You gave Traolach an opportunity to explore his position in an informed environment. You were so well prepared for the meeting which allowed you to draw out and inspire Traolach. Thanks to that meeting with you Fidelma he has achieved a full-time job as well as a place on a course in September 2020 if he wants it. He is so happy and upbeat, all thanks to your knowledge , experience and encouragement. As a family we are overwhelmed and grateful for your input into Traolach's future.We know that anyone given an opportunity to meet you will be confident and well informed as to what is available to them, allowing for their specific interests and ability. Thank you so much.

Switching on for Learning is an ideal text to prepare Senior Cycle students for Exams

I have used Dr. Fidelma Healy's "Switching on for Learning" book with Fifth and Sixth Year students as a basis for dealing with study skills and exam preparation in class groups. The book is very comprehensive and provides enough material for the guidance counsellor or teacher to dip in and choose appropriate strategies for different groups of students, depending on what they need. There is enough in the book for a full term's worth of study-skills classes and no need to prepare powerpoints or use a computer room. I can recommend it highly.

Parents

As parents our intention is to give our children "roots" and give them "wings". Strong roots to help them believe in themselves and to give them a good start in life. Wings to help them set out on their own and become independent.


This journey is not always plain sailing for every child or young person. Some benefit from individual help from time to time. Study & Careers believes in the innate talent and uniqueness of every child. It knows that timely help can enable your learner to overcome challenges they face along the way. To do so, it offers courses for you the parent and one-to-one private consultations to support your student.
