The Scotia Mews Academy in Moyderwell, Tralee are now offering Leaving Certificate final revision courses across a range of subjects.
Many students will be sitting their Leaving Certificate exams this June, studying for subjects designed to be taught and examined in a traditional school setting. However, the frequent and ongoing changes to the courses, as well as the last two years of disruption to students’ lives and educational plans, has had a terrible effect on students’ preparation for the biggest tests of their lives.
With college places at a premium next year due to grade inflation and deferrals from last year, the Scotia Mews Academy aims to ensure that students are fully and optimally prepared for the challenges they will face in June.
It’s been a tough year in the jobs market. Covid-19 has hit it hard, with many sectors forced to close their doors entirely and thousands losing their jobs overnight.
There are currently approximately 186,000 people on the Live Register and approximately 443,000 more receiving the Pandemic Unemployment Payment. That’s a lot of people who are looking for work.
The good news is that now that lockdown is easing, the economy is opening back up.
