CAO Change of Mind opens tomorrow May 5

Published

on

Almost 73,000 made applications to CAO by February 1 this year – and if you haven’t done so and want to apply there is still time. Late Applications closed on May 1 at 5.15pm. Tomorrow (May 5) at 12pm the CAO Change of Mind facility will open to allow students to make changes to course choices. This can be done up to July 1 at 5.15pm. You can make changes on both lists – Level 8 and Level 7/6.

 

The two lists are completely separate in your application. You can take out, add in or change the order of the courses. Some restrictions do apply, for example it is not permitted to add in any ‘Restricted’ courses at this stage. If you do not wish to change your courses you don’t need to do anything, the original course choices will remain unchanged. There is no charge for the Change of Mind facility and if you make a change online, an acknowledgement is sent to the email address used at the application stage. You can also log on to www.cao.ie/myapplication to check it at any time. A video guide to the Change of Mind can be found on www.cao.ie.

REVISIT YOUR CHOICES

Lots of you were under pressure and unsure of choices ahead of the February 1 deadline so it is really important to revisit your CAO choices at this stage and well in advance of July 1 deadline, after which no changes can be made. Any changes you make at this stage cancel and supersede all previous course choices and whatever choices and/or changes you have made by July 1 are final. Whatever courses you have included at that stage, in whatever order you have listed them, is what CAO will work with when they get access to your Leaving Cert results, usually in mid-August.

It is important to take note of the following:

* Always place your courses in order of preference – not in the order of the points. Remember you will not know the points for 2021 until the day that the first round offers are issued, usually shortly after the Leaving Cert results come out.

* Check the Alert Lists for the various colleges on www.cao.ie to check if any new courses are now available that might interest you. Such courses may not have been included in the CAO booklet at the beginning of the school year.

* Fill up all 20 choices if possible (10 Level 8 and 10 Level 7/6) as this gives you the best option of getting a course somewhere, even if it is not in your top choices.

* Research all courses that you put on the CAO thoroughly; entry requirements, course content, work placement, career options etc.

* Check your emails as you will receive confirmation of your new course choices.

If there are any errors or omissions contact the CAO office immediately as it will be too late to do anything about them at a later stage.

Remember, CAO is not the only option. There are hundreds of excellent courses in colleges of Further Education which allow you to progress through the CAO system onto Higher Education once completed.

Check out www.fetchcourses.ie, and at a local level check out www.kerrycollege.ie and www.kerryetb.ie. Apprenticeship options are also expanding all the time, check out www.apprenticeship.ie.

70 toddlers from Currow Play School have become Ireland’s littlest fundraisers as they stepped out to raise vital funds for vulnerable children.

They took part in the Barnardos Big Toddle which this year has the theme of ’Community Helpers’.

Barnardos currently works with just under 18,000 children and families across Ireland and the funds raised will support Barnardos Early Years services.

“This year, Currow Play School turns 25 and we have been taking part in Barnardos Big Toddle since 2006, which is 18 years of toddling in aid of vulnerable children,” Catherine Fleming form Currow Play School said.
“Our toddle is a highlight for the children and the team every year. It’s fantastic to get the little ones involved in something so worthwhile at a young age, it’s always a great day of fun. Barnardos provides a huge number of services in communities across Ireland, but these can only continue with help from the public. The toddle runs throughout June so I would implore anyone with toddlers or wobblers at home to sign up for Barnardos Big Toddle supported by Pipin Pear today.”

Anyone wishing to take part can register today at www.barnardos.ie/bigtoddle.

In need of rejuvenation after lockdown or looking for a great gift idea for Father’s Day? All the facials we offer are suitable for both men and women. CACI treatments truly deliver visible results.

It’s the equivalent to a good workout in the gym, but for the face. Our gentleman’s CACI facial treatment targets the razor bumps, in-grown hairs, and skin impurities. It finishes with a tightening and firming of the muscles resulting in a youthful well defined jawline. Since reopening I have seen a huge uptake on the male facials.

We work with the CACI Synergy system, a medical grade machine which provides you with treatments for acne scarring, dehydrated skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and loose sagging skin. Along with offering the full facial we specialise in the eye revive which is great during these times as the eyes are highlighted.

We also focus on the jowl lift which concentrates on the neck and jawline. A course of treatments is recommended for best results.
 

UNIQUE

What makes the CACI facial so unique is it offers real results without damaging the skin. It works deep into the basal layer of the skin, strengthening the foundation of the skin and stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin. It originated in the medical field working on stroke patients and Bell’s Palsy suffers. They discovered that the side they were working on the effected side, started to look younger and more lifted after treatments, hence its entry into the beauty industry. CACI treatments give visible results even after one treatment.

The dual action of SPED microcurrent/LED light therapy technology is so advanced and innovative.

The entire process takes 80 minutes. It starts with deep cleansing using an orbital micro-dermabrasion with light therapy, followed by the ultra-sonic actuator for deep cleansing and gentle exfoliating, propelling impurities to the skin’s surfaces, followed by micro current lifting using a specific technique, this also includes the LED light therapy. We then use the wrinkle comb – an alternative to Botox – which is intense light therapy. It’s all finished off with a silicone mask soak in hyaluronic acid, which has an extremely cooling effect and is hydrating. We use a galvanic current to push this amazing product deep into the lower levels of the skin. A truly results driven facial suitable for both men and women.
