CAW aims to inspire and inform all students about the importance of having a post-secondary education plan. 

It advocates for students to have the choice to pursue the course best suited to their interests, abilities and dreams, whether that is a PLC qualification, an apprenticeship or a university degree.

It was a busy day in Cork for Marty. A former UCC student he received an alumni award at the college for his 30 years of broadcasting.
