Plans for Major changes to CAO System

Leaving Cert students will be able to choose between CAO and further education options at the same time from next year under plans to tackle “academic snobbery” over alternatives to third level.

Minister for Further and Higher Education Simon Harris said there is a growing number of high quality options for school leavers in the further education and apprenticeships sectors.

However, many families discount these options due to a “snobbish attitude” that they are for other people, he said.

Work is underway to create a single portal in time for the next academic year which will give parity of esteem to all options and allow students to apply for higher and further education courses at the same time.

In addition, he says, work is being advanced to build a “fully integrated” further education and higher education system which will allow students to transfer seamlessly from one to the other.
