It is always a difficult decision to know what area of study one wishes to pursue after completing one's full-time education. It is even more difficult, if having left full-time education many years ago to make that decision to return again and to take up where one left off. Coming up to the Leaving Certificate we are presented with so much choice and pressure to make a correct lifetime choice that it is difficult, if not impossible, to know what is the correct option to choose. Post Leaving Certificate courses have been developed with a view to providing students with options to study in their areas of interest and to either pursue those interests in Higher Education or to move directly to the workplace. They also provide mature students with a route that enables them to avail of a second chance education system that allows for the acquiring of new skills and re-acquaintance with skills acquired at an earlier stage in life.
