St. Wolstan’s Community School celebrates College Awareness Week 2022

College Awareness Week (CAW) is taking place from 21st to 27th November 2022.

The CAW Campaign:

  • Promotes the benefits of a post-secondary education plan for all
  • Supports students to become “college ready”
  • Showcases local role models.

St. Wolstan’s Community School Guidance Department have organised the following to mark College Awareness Week:

  • Daily College Quiz with Prizes
  • Visit from Dunboyne College of Further Education
  • Classroom Visits by 6th Year students to share their experiences of choosing a college.

Led by our Guidance Counsellors, Bríd Hughes and Kieran Corcoran, we 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 in Ireland 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 many other organisations such as the Institute of Guidance Counsellors, the Union of Students in Ireland, and the Irish Union of Second Level Students.

Each year, events take place across educational institutions and places of learning, including schools, colleges, libraries, youth clubs, and organisations in the community education sector. Last year, CAW saw over 1,000 events taking place with over 150,000 students positively impacted. CAW 2022 is expected to continue 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.
