Brief outline of class content
Due to COVID-19, senior cycle students all over Ireland have missed out on valuable access to career guidance. Here at Synergy Careers, we have put together an online Career Guidance Programme, to allow to explore career decisions to suit each individual participant. We run several 4 week Career Exploration Program online over the school year.
Our classes are held once a week. The cost is €95 for the 4 week programme plus online access to resources. The classes will be approximately one hour per week. The lessons will be transmitted through Zoom.
Here is a brief video outlining Career Classes and how to book your preferred programme.
Aimed at Senior Cycle students (TY, 5th and 6th years) looking for experienced and indepth support and guidance on selecting a career path best suited to them. During the 4 weeks, students are guided through a process of self-exploration and career exploration with access to online resources. The aim is for each student to gather relevant information via online resources, reflective exercises, assessments, discussion ending up with a much clearer sense of who they are, what interests them and what courses/careers best suit and warrant further investigation.
Students will be provided with pre-paid access to online resource MyFuture+, assessments and worksheets with lots of reflective exercises, breakout rooms to allow for peer discussion. The program will help students explore their skills, interests, values etc in a group setting.
Students will also be introduced to careers research – key resources and guidelines on how best to research so that they can make an informed decision when applying for college/work
For TY students making subject choice, guidance and tips will be given based on areas of interest and ensuring requirements are met for future career choices (based on what careers are highlight at this time). This offers an alternative to 1 to 1 careers consultation at more affordable costs.

Some Feedback from our Satisfied Clients!
“I really enjoyed doing this career guidance course with Synergy Careers because it really helped me get a firm grasp on what I would like to do after school. It helped me choose leaving certificate subjects by giving me insight in to what each course involved and which ones would benefit me in choosing a college course. I was also able to narrow down what area of work I would like to work in thanks to the expert advice I received. Overall I would really recommend this course to any secondary school student as it’s extremely beneficial!”
“After attending Julie’s career guidance course I had more certainty in what career path I would like to take in the future. Julie showed me that I didn’t just have to settle for what I think I should do in life but to pursue a career that would make me happy. These were the best career classes I’ve had. I would recommend this course to any TY student who is trying to decide which subjects to choose.”
” Our 16 year old daughter attended this course seeking career guidance. The career classes taught her several different ways to consider her own skills and talents and how to better make subject choices. As a consequence, she is now much more firm-footed about her future. She has a greater sense of direction and purpose as a result. I’d highly recommend Synergy Careers for any young person and want to thank Julie and her team for the concrete guidance received.”
