For Parents & Students 2021/22
Starting August 30th, FREE weekly webinars will take place each Monday during school term to support Parents and Students during Senior Cycle on their journey through Careers Planning and Research. This resource is also available to schools to support their Guidance Programme for senior cycle.
Aim: Is to provide a rounded career guidance information & support that offers Parents and Students a stepping stone to careers research and compliments the Career Guidance Program in schools.

Backstory: Synergy Careers launched in May 2020, a series of collaborative webinars as a support to Guidance Counsellors, Parents and Students in the wake of the pandemic and the resulting uncertainty around leaving certificate exams and progression to college at the time. The resulting feedback from guest speakers, guidance counsellors and attendees led to the continued provision of this service over 2020/21 of which Synergy Careers hosted 39 webinars featuring lots of guest speakers from colleges, related service providers, students, graduates and parents. Feedback has been very positive with 100% of attendees stating they would recommend the webinars, when polled throughout the year. Over 2,000 attended the live sessions, with over 1600 viewing the recordings in 2020/21.Webinar schedule 2021 22
