A levels - a route to many career paths

CSSC Chief Executive Barry Mulholland today, Thursday 16 August, acknowledged the hard work of pupils, teachers and principals as young people from controlled schools across Northern Ireland received their A level results.

Barry Mulholland said, 

Attaining A levels opens up many career paths and, regardless of whether young people are heading to university, further education or the world of work, I would like to wish all the best to the A level students in post primary controlled schools today.

For some, the results may not be as expected.  If this is the case, be aware there are still many higher and further education opportunities out there.  School careers advisors or the careers service could provide some useful guidance. 

I would like to acknowledge the teachers who have delivered a varied choice and intensive academic curriculum to their pupils despite the ongoing financial pressures facing schools.

Finally I am acutely aware of the dedication and commitment of controlled school principals to helping young people achieve their potential and my thanks goes to them for their leadership.

I know they will be justifiably proud of both pupils and staff.
