Local school Coláiste Pobail Osraí has teamed up with State Street Ireland in a new initiative to provide sudents with work skills and insights.
Senior cycle students will take part in the Skills @ Work programme, where volunteer employees work with them on CV writing and interview skills and give them an insight in to the array of jobs available to students through ‘A Day in the Life” session. The link has been facilitated by the Schools’ Business Partnership and is an initiative of Business in the Community Ireland.
“The Skills @ Work programme proposed by the Schools’ Business Partnership will help our students to identify the connection between education and the future opportunities that may be available” said principal Cathnia Ó Muircheartaigh.
“Establishing a rapport with employees from a local business will give great career exposure and open the students’ eyes to what is involved in various jobs or careers on a day to day basis. It will allow them to explore what may be of interest and give them a target to aim towards in terms of their education.”
