I am a student at North Down & Ards Institute studying a BTEC National Diploma in Multimedia. I need to start thinking about what I want to do after this as my personal tutor is always asking me about my goals and plans! I cant decide whether to look for a job or continue studying. what & where next?
There is an exciting new website where I can find out all about multimedia courses in FE and HE in Northern Ireland. The NIIMLE portal gives me information about where the course is, the level, the duration, mode of attendance and much much more.
If I need general information about the college or university I can click on the name and go to their website. And if I still havent got enough information I can use the NIIMLE mentoring service. I dont even have to go into the college or telephone to talk to an academic on the course I am interested in. How cool!
I need to see my current results to make a decision & sure enough the NIIMLE portal shows me my NDAI records. If I move to a new college or university my new results will be added to this record and will always be available via the portal. Thats great because I wont have to go looking in umpteen places next time I need this information.
There will a personal section on the portal available to me lifelong where I can record all my education, career and personal development thoughts and plans. I can record whatever I want here, even things like the skills I have acquired and how I can demonstrate that I have these. This is going to save me heaps of time when I have to fill in application forms or prepare a CV.
