Those in attendance highlighted their career path and personal journeys in their pathway to success. This was followed by the students attending one to one group sessions with various individuals and organisations to discuss their future career options.It was highlighted throughout the day that Donegal is very much “open for business” and that there are good employment opportunities close to home for students when they finish school and Further Education. One of the event organisers and the school Guidance Counsellor Helena Cunningham said that ‘this is a unique opportunity for students in Dungloe and the surrounding areas to meet with successful employers and find out about employment opportunities available to them”. This event was coordinated by the Guidance department with the help of a committee of teachers and SNAs. There were talks on the day by a wide selection of professionals ranging from the key areas of Medicine, Business and Engineering. One area which was highlighted throughout the day was the ever increasing number of new apprenticeships now available to students. This ‘earn and learn’ vocational model consists of ‘on the job training’ and ‘academic study’ which is becoming increasingly popular with young adults rather than the traditional college degree course.The school also had the pleasure of welcoming back some past pupils for this event, to tell their story of their personal journey and career paths.Rosses Community would like to take this opportunity to thank all the guests that attended the careers day; as well as the staff and students for their help and cooperation throughout the day.Check out photos from the day below, with more on the Rosses Community School Facebook Page   Picture Special: Students learn the secrets to success at Rosses Community School Careers Fair was last modified: May 25th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dungloeRosses Community School Careers Fair​​last_img read more
