Supporting Teenagers Transition Successfully from Second Level

Aware of the challenges facing Secondary School students as they transition into Higher Education, Anne supports senior cycle students and their parents embrace this change, facilitating the successful transition into the next phase of their lives, whether they choose to go directly into higher education or not. Anne also helps parents develop their role in supporting their teenager's successful transition.


Parents are important partners in their teenagers' development. Without a strong sense of self, young people can struggle to stay on track, educationally and career-wise. Anxiety about their future can affect health and well-being.
