Carear PathThe healthcare sector is one of the largest employers in Ireland. It includes private medical practices, dental surgeries, physiotherapy clinics, public and private hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, medical insurance companies, and supplies and manufactures of medical devices and medicines. All of these companies employ secretaries and administrators. Small medical practices generally employ one or two secretaries while larger companies and organisations require a much higher number of administration staff. If you complete a QQI major award with Kerry College, you may use your results to progress to third level (University, Technological University or Institute of Technology). You should check individual university websites for specific entry criteria for courses. There is a separate section on the CAO application for applying using your QQI results from Kerry College in the same way you use your Leaving Certificate results. You may also apply under the QQI Higher Education Links Scheme (HELS). A limited number of places are available each year.
