School Employer Connections


"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." (W.B. Yeats)

Over 500 Employers Support our Programmes and We engage with over 70 Secondary and Grammar Schools

School Employer Connections enhance the range and quality of links between the world of work and the world of education in the West region (of Northern Ireland), through development and delivery of appropriate best practice models and roll out of effective programmes.

This is achieved through our 3 flagship programmes;

  • Work Experience (i.e. covering Work Experience, Work Shadowing & Work Placements)

  • Class Programme (Class study visits)

  • Careers Events

Our service users are pupils between the ages of 12 and 18 years old in post primary schools (i.e. both mainstream and special schools).

  • Careers Teachers

  • Subject Teachers

Our providers are employers from all sectors (i.e. private, public and voluntary).
