Through our ongoing work with secondary schools in the North Cork area, Avondhu Blackwater Partnership are aware that there is a lack of clear and distinct information on alternative access routes to Further and Higher Education available to students who are not pursuing the CAO route to further education. We are aiming to address this gap by holding an Information Event focusing on the alternative opportunities available to students, who for a variety of reasons are not applying through the CAO route on Wednesday 25th March.

This event will provide an informal yet informative forum for educational organisations and providers to interact with the public providing guidance and advice on the possibilities available, highlighting the pathways that exist to higher and further education and training opportunities for people living in the Avondhu Blackwater area.

It affords an opportunity to ask questions as well as browse the lists of full and part-time courses available post Leaving Certificate and also for those considering a return to education, as well as providing information on how to overcome the financial barriers to education by accessing higher education grants and scholarships.

Date: Wednesday 25th March

Time: 3pm-7pm

Venue: Fermoy Community Youth Centre
