Student Career Coaching
Motivational Student Career Coaching and Guidance is suitable for any student from Junior Cert to Postgraduate level who feels in awe or overwhelmed with choices facing them and has no idea where to start.
Career coaching supports students to gain a greater awareness of themselves so that they are in a better position to make informed decisions on subject and career choices.
Through psychometric questionnaires, students get a better understanding of their personality, interests and strengths. Through career coaching, suitable occupations, courses and subjects are narrowed down.
This service in particular benefits students who might be:
Struggling with motivation to study
Unsure what their strengths are
Unsure what Leaving Cert subjects to choose
Struggling with CAO choices
Torn between career options
Student Career Coaching Process
Choosing the right career and being successful and happy in your life is about more than passing examinations, it is about identifying your strengths, skills and interests and working with them.
Prior to our first session a Personal Profile Assessment is completed online. This takes approximately 10 minutes and is designed to give an insight into your strengths and key motivators. A report is automatically generated on completion of the assessment and sent directly to me.
An initial 90 minute feedback session is then held with you where we will work through the report to help you to identify and focus your choices on subjects, courses, training or employment most suited to you and your personality. I will also provide you with some follow up actions to research potential options and help you narrow down your choices.
A follow-up 60 minute session is usually recommended once you have had time to digest the information and progress your actions, to motivate and encourage and keep your goals and aspirations on track.
Your parent or guardian is welcome to join at the latter part of the initial sessions and follow-up sessions if you/they wish.
Assistance with CAO applications and other applications can also be provided.
Additional 60 minute motivational or career discovery coaching sessions can be booked to motivate and encourage, and keep goals and aspirations on track.
I’ve certainly gained a much greater understanding of myself and my behaviour, and have got lots of ideas as to what I might do. I couldn’t believe how accurate the assessment was- the summary of my strengths has been a huge confidence booster! I plan to take more sessions throughout my last two years at school to keep me focused and on top of things.
