Better Options College Fair 2010

Examinations Hall, Trinity College Dublin on 30th November 2010 from 10.30 am - 2.00 pm

It is well documented that many pupils with disabilities in second level find career choice challenging and confusing and have difficulty accessing the information they need to help them make an informed choice. Better Options is a key event to communicate directly with students with disabilities, parents and guidance counsellors to enable them to ask questions directly and get information about disability support services available to them in higher and further education and to encourage them to have the career aspirations to fulfil their potential.

  • Presentation on the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE).
