Careers week in Secondary

Exciting news for our careers week!

We’ve invited professionals spanning from different industries to have talks with our students in the Lough Road building.

We are hoping that these chats and Q&A sessions will inspire our pupils to achieve more, and to help them around things they would like to do for work in their coming future.

See who‘s coming and when!
