Engagement Outreach

The DIT Access and Civic Engagement office are coordinating a Transition Year Skills Challenge amongst the 4 local Grangegorman secondary schools: Mount Carmel, St. Paul's CBS, Stanhope Street Secondary and Cabra Community College.

The areas the students will be competing in include:

  • Sports
  • Speech/Debating
  • Vocational Skills

The aim of the Vocational Skills Challenge element of the competition is to choose skills that:

  • Will appeal to the teenagers and their inherent talents and abilities
  • Where possible link with the secondary curriculum
  • In some way relate to courses that are being offered at third level in DIT

This year 2017/18 the challenges have been in the following areas:

  • Debating (September 2017)
  • Visual Merchandising (November 2017)
  • Craft Design (February 2018)
  • Cullinary Arts (March 2018)
  • Sports Day (April 2018)
