This initiative will be launched in September 2019. The key objective of this initiative is to develop employment and employability in the local community through supporting four individuals in progressing their education, and their employment opportunities, through:
An enriching and challenging course in Rathmines College from 12 September 2019 to 29 May 2020 where candidates will undertake a fully funded QQI Level 5 Course
- Career development guidance from the Central Bank, with the allocation of a mentor for the duration of the programme
- A two-week unpaid placement, as part of the programme of study, in the Central Bank where candidates can apply the knowledge and skills acquired from their course (this occurs in February)
- A paid summer internship in the Central Bank from June until August 2020 to gain experience of working in a corporate environment.
- Shortlisting for interview in to the 2020/2021 Central Bank Scholarship Programme
The Rathmines courses for study, and their appropriate links, are listed below;
The qualifying criteria for entry will be that the Rathmines Level 5 course would represent the highest level of the person’s academic qualifications to date. Also, just to confirm that this is not an initiative that is solely for young people, there is no age requirement on this.
The applications process will be live on the Central Bank’s website from August 9th. Candidates will be applying via the careers portal of the Central Bank’s website and I will be in touch again closer to the date to share the link.
Any questions please let me know. If you would like a member of the team to come to present to any of your groups we would be more than happy to do so.
