Skills @ Work
Our Skills @ Work provides students with a unique insight into the world of work. A number of volunteer employees from Horse Racing Ireland partner an entire class in either 5th year. Over five sessions, students are provided with the opportunity to learn about Horse Racing Ireland and its business and to consider careers and further study options available to them when they finish school.
Sessions in the Skills @ Work programme involve a site visit, CV writing skills, mock interviews, Day in the Life insights and at the conclusion the class present their learnings.
It is the HR department who conduct the mock interviews and this can be an invaluable experience for young students who would never have experienced preparing for and performing in a professional business interview.
