What did you find helpful about the Guidance Service?

Quotes from some of the Students who worked with us.

“It helped me understand more of what course I wanted and the skills I can learn”

“I found Karen very friendly, helpful and informative. I received a lot of encouragement and practical information about course choices. This guidance service is a great help at many levels when going on to further adult education, with good professional and genuine staff.”

“I felt very reassured to know the service was there for myself & others. I only had to attend once as Karen did a lot of research for me and sent on a lot of information to me, which saved me a lot of stress. I was able to make a clear decision about my future as a result of the service”

“My thoughts were confused about what sort of work / education I was aiming for. After attending I found that I could think more clearly and was more relaxed regarding my future. By just being able to talk to someone who had the right information was extremely helpful”

“When I finished work one year ago after working in the construction industry for 24 years, I had no idea of what I could do. This service helped me”

“I found it to be very helpful as at that time my life wasn’t going anywhere. It helped me put things straight in my mind also to focus on what was positive for me in schoolwork and also outside school”

“Very nice helpful staff, Karen & Roisín were a great help to me, great idea to come into classes and tell people information otherwise I wouldn’t have gone to Colaiste Ide and made a decision on what course I wanted to start on. Thanks”

“Karen was very helpful. The career path was very good. It gave me insight as to what direction I should gear myself towards. She gave me information on what courses were out there and made me feel very relaxed”

“I found it most helpful and very clear. I enjoyed the one to one conversation and found this very good with my personal development”

“I think the service was great, the staff were easy going and friendly, a genuine interest in the students, and always willing to help.”
