Students are requested to undertake three separate work placements.
This exercise is hugely beneficial as it enables each individual to discover their own personal strengths.
In addition, it provides the students with an opportunity to gain an insight into different occupational backgrounds, which will assist them in making informed subject and career choices during Leaving Certificate.
It is the responsibility of students, with support from parents/guardians to secure work placement. Parents are asked to help ensure students meet deadlines for submission of placement details.
The school must be provided with details of ALL work experience placements on the ‘Confirmation of Placement Form’ at least 3 weeks in advance.
The dates for 2017/2018 TY Work Placements are:
1. 26th November 2018– 30th November 2018
2. 25th February 2019– 1st March 2019
3. 20th May 2019—24th May 2019
Certain organisations will have set dates for work placement which may not be at the same times—these should be negotiated with the TY coordinator and will be facilitated where possible.
