IACTO Information Forum Q3 – 24th September 2019
IACTO Training & Development Calendar Q3 2019
Further to our recent attendance at the National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE) forum in The Clock Tower DES, we circulated a link on the DES website to the ‘DES/Indecon’ Report of the Independent Review of Career Guidance Tools and Information.
In addition IACTO also welcomes news of the SOLAS’ Apprenticeship Jobs Portal – https://www.apprenticeshipjobs.ie/ Development of this Portal by SOLAS will allow individuals search for an Apprenticeship in their locality, while facilitating Employers to post information regarding their hosting of apprentices for training. The Portal is a significant development toward meeting the Indecon Review of Career Guidance recommendations regarding enhancing ‘Enterprise Engagement’ and is also of significance in the context of the recommendation regarding the development of a ‘national careers portal’.
IACTO Information Forum 30th March 2019
One of our founding IACTO Board members (George Flynn pictured on the left with our Chairperson Guss O’Connell) retired this week from the Board of IACTO. We took the opportunity at our 2019 AGM to say a huge heartfelt ‘Thank You’ as we wished George the very best with his future plans, and 3rd career stage a.k.a. ‘passing the torch’.
We will miss his wit, wisdom, friendship, good counsel and complete learner centred focus in all that he did and will continue to do for learners in the D10 area for another while we hope.

It was a lovely ceremony held in the beautiful surrounds of St Catherine’s Church on Thomas St. in Dublin. May you all continue your lifelong learning journey and inspire CTC colleagues and learners alike on theirs”
