Celebrating Going To College And Showcasing Local Role Models

College Awareness Week is a big operation. Throughout the year, our important work continues, but by coming together, we put college on the agenda for the whole country for one entire week – 18th to 24th November 2024.

18th – 24th November 2024

College Awareness Week is a national event across Ireland. It aims to help students learn about the experiences they could have at college and the subjects they may want to study.

All students can benefit from this week, but it’s particularly important for students who may not have considered further education before or may not know many people who have been to college.

What Folk have said about COllege Awareness Week​

NAPD is happy to see the growth of CAW over the years. The campaign is a fantastic source of support for schools, and I’d encourage all schools to take part.

There wasn’t much talk of college where I went to school, it wasn’t advised…college was a really difficult place to get to but I’m loving it now
Niall, Mature Student
Going to college should be an option for anyone. No one should ever feel excluded. College Awareness Week is a fantastic opportunity to highlight this message
