Best of Luck to Leaving Cert Students Today


The SCSI would like to wish all Leaving Certificate students receiving results today the best of luck.

With CAO Offers coming out next Monday, we look back on the Society of Chartered Surveyors ‘Graduate Employment Trends in Construction and Property Surveying’ study from 2012 which found there is, and will be, a shortage of property and construction graduates to fill related employment opportunity going forward.

With SCSI formally accrediting nine Level 8 Construction and Property Surveying courses and with such huge employment opportunities set to become available, it is worth considering the wide range of professional roles which these degrees can lead you to.

Chartered Surveyors undertake a wide range of professional roles within the construction and property sectors including: Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying, Project Management, Property and Facilities Management, Valuation, Estate Agency and Planning and Development Surveying. You can learn more about the different types of Chartered Surveyors here.

You can see the full list of courses that we accredit and which are available to CAO applicants here. Our YouTube careers videos such as the one shown below, are also extremely beneficial in learning more about your future career.
