TWO West Cork students were among the winners of the 2016 National Careers Skills competition.  

The National Career Skill Awards, run by www.careersportal.ie, and sponsored by McDonald’s Ireland, recognise students who complete career investigations into their chosen area of interest and help equip guidance councillors with information in the area of career skills.

Patrick Hodnett from Schull Community College was commended in the Transition Year category for his work experience as a solicitor, while  Colin Kelleher from Bandon’s St Brogan’s College won second place in the LCVP/LCE/LCA Category for his work experience in pharmacy.

Each student had to demonstrate their understanding of a chosen career, the educational pathways that lead to it, the most relevant knowledge.
