Errigal College in Letterkenny has completed the wrap up of a very successful partnership with AIB through the skills@work programme, that had been running at the college for a number of years.
Students at Errigal gained an insight into one of our local financial institutions AIB, and are given the knowledge and power to positively embrace the world of work.
The programme had been run by Noreen Doherty-Fox, Retail Manager at the bank.
“Our vision at the Business Department at Errigal College is to empower our students to take control of their futures and to develop an appreciation for education” said Mr Mc Fadden Business teacher at the college.
The Skills@Work programme, run by the Schools Business partnership regional Co-odinator Elaine Mc Fadden, provides students with a unique insight into the world of work.
Over five sessions, students are provided with the opportunity to learn about their partnering company AIB and its business and to consider career and further study options available to them when they finish school.
Errigal College is always looking at ways to involving our local community and bridging links with our local businesses in Our community. We would like to take this opportunity to thank both Elaine Mc Fadden and Noreen Doherty-Fox for the committment to the programme.
