Information Webinar ‘The transition to third level for young people affected by childhood cancer’
24 November 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Moving from second to third level can be daunting for any student and parent, and it is even more so for childhood cancer survivors or young people who are undergoing treatment. We know the struggles our children and young people have been through since their diagnosis and treatment and the toll that active treatment takes. No young person affected by childhood cancer is left unmarked by their journey and the treatments needed to save their lives. Many of our children are dealing with long term and late effects, which may be physical, emotional or cognitive.
This webinar aims to provide information and advice on moving through the senior cycle and applying for college through the CAO. We will look at DARE (Disability Access Route to Education) and find out how it applies to young people affected by childhood cancer, how to apply and the key dates in the process. We will also find out more about supports available in college and how to access them.
