County Kildare Chamber congratulates the 58, 000 students who are receiving Leaving Certificate results today (16 August 2017).


Speaking this morning, Allan Shine, Chief Executive of Kildare Chamber said, “We wish all students the best of luck as they begin on the pathway towards their future career. Leaving Certificate results day is important for many young people across Ireland as they plan to make the next step.”


“Third level education is an important route for many students. However, due to recent Government investment there has been a significant increase in the apprenticeship and training options available to post-Leaving Certificate students.  We encourage students to consider apprenticeship training and the range of new options available in many sectors.”


“We would like to remind employers of the changes to the Leaving Certificate grading system and to take this into account when considering job applications from school leavers.”
