Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) recognises the difficult final year it has been for the Leaving Certificate class of 2020. Students across Ireland will receive their Leaving Certificate results on Monday 7 September.
LYIT support staff are available to offer advice and support to all students during this time. The ‘Just Ask’ initiative from LYIT will ensure that students have all the support that they require to make the next steps on their journey go smoothly.
LYIT Schools Engagement Officer Fiona Kelly has this introduction to the week’s events and supports available:
The transition to third level education is normally an exciting time for students as they embark on their new journey. Students this year should be given extra supports to ensure that this transition is an enjoyable experience.
President of LYIT, Paul Hannigan says; “It is going to be a different year for us but we have been working endlessly to ensure it will be an enjoyable year. Student support is very important to us here at the Institute and I encourage students and parents to engage with our support staff to address any questions they have at the upcoming virtual events”.
