Shaping our city through education and work experience
Our ambition is to shape our city and have a positive impact on the neighbourhoods in which we are invested. We are proud to announce a three-year partnership with Basis.Point and Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) to support BITCI’s ‘Time to Grow’ programme. This is an education and workplace initiative for young people that will provide valuable work experience and work placements for Leaving Cert students in Dublin.
Each year, the programme will provide 100 work experience places for two students from each of the 50 DEIS schools in Dublin and 20 paid work placements for Leaving Cert students from the North-East Inner City.
We believe in the power of education and the impact it has on our future. In supporting this programme, we have the opportunity to bring occupiers and the wider community together to help bridge the gap between education and employment and provide students with the tools and experiences they need to succeed in their careers.
