Last year I wrote about this great opportunity offered by the kind folk in NCI, and I’m glad to say the “Change your Life” competition is back! Karl Kilmartin was the first winner of this prize and he speaks about it here. The amazing prize package includes an educational fund worth €20,000 and €15,000 in other supports, like personal mentoring, computer equipment and even a style package worth €1,000. Contestants just need to answer one simple question: Why do you want to change your life, and how could education help?

For a slightly less dramatic opportunity WAM also has more placements on offer with the ESB. You can find more information here.
