Desmond College celebrates College Awareness Week 2017!

October 27, 2017

Desmond College organises a week of activities and guest speakers to mark College Awareness Week.

  • The fourth annual College Awareness Week (CAW) is taking place from
    November 20th to November 26th 2017
  • The campaign promotes the benefits of a post-secondary plan for all, supports students to become ‘college ready’ and features local role models
  • For further information visit www.collegeaware.ie

We at Desmond College are delighted to be part of a nationwide campaign to promote the importance of post-secondary education. There are lots of options out there and College Awareness Week encourages people of all ages to consider further education as part of their future.

CAW aims to inspire and inform all students about the importance of having a post-secondary education plan. It advocates for students to have the choice to pursue the course best suited to their interests, abilities and dreams, whether that is a PLC qualification, an apprenticeship or a university degree.

CAW is supported by the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals and the Institute of Guidance Counsellors. Many other organisations such as The National Parents Council Post-Primary, the Irish Union of Second Level Students and Irish Business Employers Confederation have backed the campaign.

The inaugural CAW in 2014, the first of its kind in Ireland, was a runaway success with over 350 events in locations including schools, higher educational institutes, community centres and libraries. Last year’s campaign saw over 1,200 events and approximately 125,000 participants. CAW 2017 is expected to bring even more participants on board, with events from Malin Head to Mizen Head and a strong focus on communities where participation in Higher Education remains below average.

College Awareness Week gratefully acknowledges the sponsorship of Perrigo, the Higher Education Authority, Trinity College Dublin and Solas, the Further Education and Training Authority, and commends their dedication to the betterment of communities and Irish society through enhanced educational experiences.

For more information on CAW, please visit www.collegeaware.ie
