Ashbourne Community School is a striving, busy school with over 1,000 students - with 200+ in Fifth Year. We in the Guidance and Counselling Dept., investigated options for careers interest inventories and aptitude testing to conduct with our Senior Cycle students. We wanted to support Irish enterprise and we were delighted with the CareerFit offered through ETC Consult.
It is excellent value for money, compared to other providers, and provides direction for students of all academic ability – those who hope to enter the world of work to those with high academic aspirations. Each student is furnished with a personalised report detailing sixteen careers giving an overview of each career area and an insight into what is involved for training. A helpful sample list of Further Education, Higher Education, Apprenticeship or Other Option courses provide a lead for students to conduct self-directed investigations into their ideal career path. This is a useful report to help discussion about career directions both at home and in school.
On a practical level, our experience was supported by the personnel in ETC Consult and any queries were quickly answered. The setting up time and running of the tests worked seamlessly. Students were furnished with a phone-friendly, downloadable report detailing the 16 signposted careers. This lends itself to informed and focused careers conversations.
