For many students, parents and guardians a new phase of life is about to begin. With the Leaving Cert results on the horizon new questions about what lies ahead are bound to arise. Help and advice is at hand.

The National Parents Council Post Primary’s free phone (1800 265 165) and online service ( will provide Leaving Cert students and their parents/guardians with professional and confidential one-to-one support, advice and guidance, all manned by experienced Guidance Counsellors dealing with topics such as the point system, rechecks, repeats, CAO procedures and further training options and more.

Mr Joe McHugh TD. Minister for Education and Skills, commented “It is an honour to be asked to help promote the great work of the National Parents Council Post Primary to make sure that young students have a place they can call for advice and someone to listen. If I had one simple message it’d be this – your exam results are only one step in what I hope will be a rewarding journey to a career and through life.”

Mai Fanning, NPCPP President has these words for students:
“Be proud of how far you’ve come. Have faith in how far you can go. You can steer yourself in any direction
you choose. But don’t forget to enjoy the journey.
