National Careers Institute - Enhanced Support for School LeaversThe National Careers Institute, at the Department of Education, Skills and Employment, has established the School Leavers initiative to help support school leavers aged 15-24 transitioning from school into a career pathway.
The transition from school can be challenging, and the COVID-19 pandemic has presented some uncertainty resulting in a changed education and workforce landscape. This service has been established to help school leavers easily find the information they need to support their decisions while deciding on their next steps as well as provide additional support through our qualified career practitioners if needed. Check out this short video for an explanation of what the service can offer.
