Skills @ Work Programme

We are delighted to be partnered again this year with Eirgrid though the Business in the Community Programme.  Our 5LCA students are taking part in the Skills @ Work programme through this partnership.

Skills @ Work provides students with a unique insight into the world of work.  Over five sessions, students are provided with the opportunity to learn about our partnering company Eirgrid and its business and to consider careers and further study options available to them when they finish school.

Sessions in the Skills @ Work programme involve a site visit, CV writing skills, mock interviews, Day in the Life insights and at the conclusion the class present their learnings.

Second Site Visit to Eirgrid

On Friday, February 2nd the 5LCA class had their second site visit to Eirgrid.  They were given a very comprehensive and engaging Business Etiquette workshop. The girls really enjoyed the very relevant interview techniques content and got to put their skills to the test at their mock interviews in school on Monday.  

Well done girls and a big thank you to Eirgrid.



First Site Visit to Eirgrid

Our 5 LCA  class visited the Eirgrid head offices in Ballsbridge on Tuesday November 14th as part of their Skills @ Work programme. They were given a very informative talk and a tour of the control centre. The Eirgrid team commended them on the presentation of their Eirgrid research project. They were treated to a light lunch with the team. It proved a worthwhile and enjoyable trip.  Thanks to all the team at Eirgrid for such an informative visit and well done to our 5 LCA class for their wonderful preparation.
