This December, DCU launched Access to the Workplace 2024 at PwC in Spencer Dock. The event, Talent to Take on the Future, explored how organisations can build a workforce that is ready to embrace the challenges of the future.
The award-winning Access to the Workplace programme provides professional summer internships for DCU Access students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, and for neurodivergent students. In this video, student participants, programme leads and partner companies share their own experiences and insights from taking part in the programme. The event also featured a talk focused on building personal resilience and effectiveness with broadcaster Kathryn Thomas.
DCU’s award-winning Access to the Workplace programme has provided 318 professional summer internships for DCU Access students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, and for neurodivergent students, since it was first launched in 2019. Leading Irish companies, who also support Access scholarships at DCU, host the internships.
