Schools' Liaison Officer

In DIT, the role of the Schools' Liaison Office is recognised as vital to help meet the needs of many Guidance Counsellors across the country.

The Schools' Liaison Officer can deliver talks to students in the classroom to help supplement what is already provided in hard copy and web based format. The presentation promotes all DIT programmes, together with information on CAO, Student Sports / Recreation and Support Services.

Guidance Counsellors can if they wish, request specific talks by individual college or school coordinators and many DIT staff from these areas also provide a valuable service in this regard.

Careers Fairs / Exhibitions are another important aspect of the role of the Schools' Liaison Office and with many of these taking place during the day with some also taking place in the evenings, we endeavour to fulfil all requests to attend. The evening events facilitate both the senior cycle students and also their parents and other non standard applicants who wish to attend without having to take time off school or work.

If you would like to avail of a class talk, please contact directly (additional contact details listed below) ensuring you include the following information:
