Learning Partnership with Northern Regional College

Bridging the gap between education and employment

Learning Partnership with Northern Regional College

To share knowledge and enhance student learning, we proactively engage with schools and colleges. As part of this long term partnership Specialist Joinery Group recently played host to Northern Regional College lecturer Majella O’Boyle during her “Colleges to Industry” industrial placement for Post Graduate studies. Majella’s studies aim to enrich classroom learning by gaining current business experience and returning this benefit to students.

Speaking about her placement at Specialist Majella said “Not only has the placement expanded my knowledge of business processes, but the experiential learning will be brought back to the classroom to develop the knowledge and skills of the students. As part of the coinciding UUJ module, it is hoped that an enquiry based learning project is piloted with the student body to encourage innovative thinkers and entrepreneurial activity. “
