AFTER the nerves and excitement of Leaving Cert results last week, Limerick school-leavers can leave the points race behind by accessing further education and training courses.

Mobile and web computing, fashion design, hairdressing and engineering are some of the courses offered by Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board (LCETB).

The courses can provide students with pathways to higher education and also for direct entry into in-demand careers.

Andrew Brownlee, CEO at SOLAS, said: “Further Education and Training provides a wealth of pathways outside of the points system that can lead school-leavers on to the career that they want.”
