TY Work Experience

Our Transition Year students embarked on their work experience last week.  Students used this wonderful opportunity to  experience a range of work placements and learn many new skills, while equipping themselves with information to make informed decisions for their futures.  Thank you to the many employers who facilitated this work experience. 

 

TY STEM Initiative

We are delighted to be included in a STEM initiative with Maynooth University  to encourage more females to enter STEM careers. This initiative takes over 3 days during the year. Students will travel to W5 in Belfast where they will experience:

  1. 3 full days of education in an education hub.
  2. Students get to learn new skills (coding, computational thinking, data analysis)
  3. Receive 3 mentoring sessions from a person working in Industry- meeting and getting to know a person who works in STEM industry
  4. STEM career information.

 

On successful completion of the programme, students will graduate from a 3rd-level institution with a Level 6 award.  STEM Skills Module – Level 6 (NFQ) qualification from Maynooth University, Munster Technological University and Atlantic Technological University – 50 leaving cert points for those who complete it (towards specific courses in MU & MTU)

Congratulations to our 30 TY female students who have signed up for this exciting challenge.
