5th year Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme students completed their final session of the Schools Business Partnership Programme with Pettitt’s Supervalu. During the ‘Wrap Up’ session, students gave a presentation to the Human Resource Manager, Ann Kane, the Store Manager, Rosaleen Casey and the Regional Coordinator Leonard Kelly. EVC Students received a certificate of completion for their participation in the programme.
The Schools Business Partnership Programme provided our students with an insight into the roles and working life of Pettitt’s employees, while also developing their own personal skills. Students found the course inspirational and fun and it has helped them focus on their futures, bringing them outside the classroom into the world of work. They gained an awareness of the necessity of third level education, particularly from the employees who described their journeys to their current roles, some having completed degrees as adults.
