All TY students are required to complete a Work Experience Programme.
One of the aims of the programme is to introduce the students to the world of work and various career options. It is hoped that they can then embark on the Leaving Certificate course with a greater sense of purpose and direction.
The students are encouraged to look for work experience in areas of interest to them and in which they may eventually make their career. Even if this does not happen, the experience gained in a workplace - including developing new skills, ensuring good time keeping and punctuality, developing social skills with other employees and the employer - is invaluable.
