Venue: Day Canteen – The Harper Building
EiSHT was created in 2019 by Caroline O’Connor. Following many years volunteering with young people and working in senior management, she saw the support structures missing to help young people develop and succeed both personally and in the workplace.
EiSHT was initially created to help young people to achieve their goals in getting their first summer jobs. It has evolved to become a toolbox to help arm young people with skills, competencies and self-awareness to be able to adapt to the rapidly evolving workplace. Caroline has facilitated workshops in schools and organisations around the country. She has been working with staff and students in DGS for the past two years and we are delighted that she will be with us on 27th February to share her experience, advice and practical tips.
