The National Career Skills Award Ceremony 2019 will take place in May at the Department of Education & Skills. The winning students, their parents, programme co-ordinators and principals will all be invited to attend the prize giving ceremony.
The national co-ordinators from all programmes and the Vice President of the IGC will be in attendance, as will key individuals in the area of guidance, education and industry.
What's the Competition?
The competition is based on your work experience.
The competition asks you to investigate closely one career and subesquent work placement that you have undertaken. It asks you to describe the job-role, find out what education is required to enter it, to notice some of the skills required to do the job well, and most importantly, to tell us what skills you have developed during that time.
In other words, you need to complete a Career Investigation for a job role you observe during your work experience.
