Junior Achievement and Scoil Chaitríona Senior

For many years now, Junior Achievement and Scoil Chaitríona Senior have worked together.

What is Junior Achievement?

Junior Achievement programmes are designed to be fun, hands-on, high-impact experiences that give young people a taste of life in the real world. These learning experiences inspire and motivate students to acquire the skills they need for future career success. Programmes begin at primary school level, teaching students how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers. All programmes are facilitated by volunteers who are fully trained and vetted before commencing and are generally delivered for 30mins once a week over 4/5 weeks. The classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.

JA primary school programmes show young students the vast array of opportunities there are for them to use their talents, imagination and creativity when they grow up. JA programmes are also aligned with the formal curriculum. JA aims to help students reach their best potential!
