Parents Workshop Sessions

CIT Access Service recognises that parents have a very influential role in supporting their children through the education system. The education system and the choices available to leaving certificate students can be difficult to take in. In an effort to help parents, the CIT Access Service provides on campus information sessions for parents groups. Parents get an opportunity to tour the campus and over a cup of coffee parents are given information about the opportunities available to their children.
