  • Choose ‘Find a course’ and ‘Search all Courses’ Don’t be put off – you can ignore most of these options if you wish to Just enter a relevant word into the ‘Keywords / Course title’ text box
  • For example Enter ‘Science’ and click on ‘Search’
  • Results screen of all courses matching ‘science’ Course name, course provider, NFQ level (if leading to a qualification recognised through the NFQ), and last year’s Leaving Cert points Note that there are 1084 results for this search Look at one example from Dublin City University
  • Lots of information available
  • Too many results to sensibly look at so you can ‘Refine Search’ You can use any of the boxes, or you can use ‘Advanced Search’ For this example, we will refine using ‘Qualification type’
  • ‘ Qualification type’ ALL of the information and searches from the old site are available We’ll use ‘Post Leaving Certificate’ as the example
  • Now we have a much smaller number of courses. Let me draw your attention to two features on the course listing screen Compare and tag courses First let’s look at ‘Compare’ If I am unsure of the differences between, for example, Applied Laboratory Science, Applied Science, and Applied Science laboratory Techniques Tick the ‘Compare’ boxes and then click on ‘Compare’ in the blue tab at the top
  • Compare up to 3 different courses
  • I’ve tagged two courses that interest me… See how shown on the screen I will also search for Engineering courses, explore what is available and tag any that look interesting - in exactly the same way as before
  • List of courses that I’ve tagged Can save this information if you have created a user account, or signed into your existing user account Warning in red to ‘Save’ this information – your choice if you wish to do so
  • See the menu – ‘Useful Tools’ The Points Calculator is one of several useful tools To use: Select all the subjects you are taking Select ‘Higher’ or ‘Ordinary’ level – you can also set all subjects to one level with one click The Calculator will automatically select your 6 best subjects, showing these points in bold text You can easily change your predictions and re-calculate your points
  • The Interest Assessment is designed to help work out what type of work or course might suit you
  • Results are given for 7 main interest areas (list) Take care to ‘Save Results’ You can search by interest area
  • Look at the search screen again When you have used the Points Calculator, or completed the Interest Assessment, these can be used to refine your search e.g. search by your highest scoring Interest Area
  • Last feature to mention today The homepage shows Career Events coming in the next few days You can also search for Career Events For example, searching for Events between 15 September and 24 October
  • That’s it for now Thanks for your attention Visit the stands Use the website to explore further
