Kildare Town Community school’s yearly business programme with Kildare Village has been hailed as a great success by all involved.

The students who took part benefited from practice interviews, presentations from management about their careers and general learning about Kildare Village and its different departments.

They will also each partake in work experience.

Speaking after the final wrap-up session in the school recently, teacher Tadhg O’Connor said: “There was presentations of gifts to management of Kildare Village Outlet, and a presentation by students who all received their certificates of achievement.”

Described as fun learning, 35 fifth year students in Kildare Community School took part in the Kildare Village Outlet Business Programme this year.

“All the students enjoyed and benefited from the programme, which involved company interviews, presentations and work shadowing,” he added.

“The students learned about different careers, the business in Kildare town and the international business which is also growing and successful.”

The last task before the programme completes for the year includes a three day work experience for each participant during the Easter holidays.

“Students are also looking forward to completing three days of work experience over the Easter break at the Kildare Village,” said Tadhg.

The Kildare Village is one of the Collection of nine Chic Outlet Shopping Villages by Value Retail.
