WITH more than 56,000 Leaving Certificate students set to get their results on Wednesday, the free Examination Helpline is at the ready to offer support and valuable information.
Hosted by the National Parents’ Council Post Primary (NPCpp), it will be open from Wednesday until Wednesday, August 24 to take calls from students, parents and teachers.
The Helpline is sponsored by the Irish Independent and eircom and is supported by the Department of Education and Skills. It is staffed by members of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors, who are fully qualified experts in their field, while representative of the grant-awarding body, SUSI, will also be on hand to answer queries.
All queries on third level courses, such as the points system, rechecks, repeats, CAO procedures, apprenticeships and further training options will be dealt with in a professional and confidential manner.
The Helpline received thousands of calls last year, and helped students to make informed decisions about the choices they faced and their future career paths.
Those seeking advice, information or reassurance can contact the Helpline on 1800 265 165.
