Lucan Workshop

the core of our programme

All of our champions have plenty of very interesting working experiences with most being recently graduated teachers.  But wherever they are from, they all have a common interest, ensuring you as students and young workers, are aware of your rights in the workplace. 

If you would like to invite one of our champions to your school to give a FREE lesson to students on the working world and their rights, or the 1913 Lockout, please fill in our online booking form

Hi my name is Joanne and I am the South-East Champion, covering counties Wexford, Wicklow, Carlow, Kilkenny, Kildare and Laois.
I am a qualified History and C.S.P.E. teacher.
The information we give students with Youth Connect is so valuable. I have worked in a variety of different jobs since I was fifteen and know how daunting it can be to start your first job. For many they don't have the basic information to ensure they are getting what they are entitled to and to make sure they are being treated in a fair, respectful manner.
It is important students have a strong voice and are able to seek advice and help to ensure their welfare. Students are the workforce of the future and enlightening them on these topics will help create informed, united workers.
I am delighted to be part of this fantastic programme and to help the students of the South-East have a smooth transition into the working world.

NORTHEAST REGION (Monaghan, Meath, Cavan, Louth)

 

Selina Lindsay is our North East Region Champion covering the counties of Louth, Meath, Cavan and Monaghan. Here is what she has to say about her role in the programme:

As the Youth Connect representative for the North East region I endeavour to raise awareness amongst students of their rights and responsibilities, as they move towards the working world. I aim to foster development of key skills which they will require to pivot them into a secure and positive adult life. As a qualified teacher I particularly enjoy the diversity of the programme which allows me engage with students from a range of subject areas including History, Business Studies and LCVP. The 1913 Lockout workshop, which delves into the history of workers‘rights, together with our variety of Working World workshops, brings the programme full circle. It is personally gratifying to listen to students’ views and hopefully illustrate topics in a way that ensures they see their relevance to their everyday lives.
