Support Services

Career Guidance Service

SligoCFE offers a full-time Career Guidance Counselling service to all registered students throughout the academic year. We aim to assist students in getting the maximum benefit from their college experience, by providing them with information and advice on a range of career and progression topics. SligoCFE is an inclusive college, and we like to get to know our students and help them settle in and deal with any anxieties they may have. Hence, we offer an initial counselling service where any personal issues can be discussed and if necessary, students can be guided to the appropriate service.

Our services include:

  • CAO application advice
  • UCAS application advice (for UK colleges)
  • QQI progression route information
  • SUSI (Funding & Grants)
  • Scholarship Information
  • Guest Speakers from Industry and the Higher Education Institutes
  • Interview coaching
  • Career Interest Inventories
  • Mature student support
  • Confidential Individual Career and Personal Counselling
  • Apprenticeships
