Going to College podcast 1

How college places and the CAO system are panning out for students this year

Listen in to episode 1 of the QQI/Irish Independent Going to College podcast.  Joining presenter Rob O'Hanrahan in the studio for episode one is Padraig Walsh, CEO of QQI and Aoife McArdle, Guidance Counsellor at the Institute of Education.

When it comes to choosing the right course, Padraig has a strong piece of advice for those considering their career and future, "In my view, you should choose the things that you're interested in and that you like because you'll do better if you're doing that. Rather than picking a subject because you think it's going to get you a job."
