GO4IT Programme - Secondary Level
TUS Access Service works in partnership with the Northside Family Resource Centre and linked schools to deliver the Go4IT programme. This programme aims to introduce the concept of lifelong learning and show that education has a real purpose.
The main objectives of the Go4IT programme are:
- To facilitate increased access to third-level education by young people from the linked areas
- To raise awareness of educational options for young people and their families
- To provide young people with a positive experience of third-level education
- To support young people to reach their full educational potential
- To break down barriers and misconceptions the participants and their families may have in relation to third-level education
- To demonstrate that third-level education is a welcoming and supportive place.
The first year of this programme begins in sixth class at primary school. Once the student enters secondary school, the programme works to support their transition and continue to engage them in experiential activities until they complete their Leaving Certificate.
World of Work Programme
TUS Access Service works in partnership with Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) through the Schools’ Business Partnership programme. This is an education inclusion programme that partners schools with business. TUS is partnered with Thomond Community College to deliver the World of Work programme. The main aim of this programme is to positively impact on educational inclusion and address key issues in areas of educational disadvantage in Ireland.
The programme is delivered to second year participants from Thomond Community College, who will be provided with a very interesting insight into jobs, careers, and into how a business operates and it will enable them to consider what is involved in the world of work. This is fundamental for them as they endeavour to maximise their own talents and fully engage in society as young adults.
The workshops and learning activities delivered are as follows:
- TUS site tour & Day in the Life session
- Sustainability Session
- Communication & Presentation skills session
- Wrap Up Session
