Public Services Card - Last Chance!!!

The new Public Services Card
The Department of  Social Protection will be in C.C.S. again next week (Tue 2nd May) to complete the TY applications for the Public Services Card.  I will contact the pupils who have already submitted their documentation. Anyone who has taken their documentation back for whatever reason, but wishes to apply for a Public Services Card should return the documentation to me immediately in R.132.   

Attendant Positions - State Examinations Commission

It's that time of year again when the quest begins for the highly coveted positions of Attendant during the State Exams. The duties of Attendant include manning the entrance to the exam centre and barring entry to the centre to all but State Examinations personnel with valid ID and/or school authorities. The Attendant must be available to carry out any task required of them by the Supervisor in the course of their duties, together with ensuring that there is no noise outside the centre. Tea/coffee will have to be brought to the Supervisor twice daily.   Only TYs with an excellent record for attendance and punctuality should apply.   Applicants should prepare a C.V. and cover letter outlining their contribution to C.C.S. generally and specifically during TY, together with details of their engagement with the opportunities offered during Transition Year. All documentation should be brought to Ms McGeehin in R.132 on or before Fri 12th May 2017. Shortlisting of candidates will occur.  Successful applicants will be notified before the end of May. Best of luck!
