DPS launch Student Support Programme

24 September 2015

DPS, the global engineering and project management group, has launched a  four-year student support programme in partnership with two schools in Cork, (St Aidan’s Community College in Dublin Hill and St Patrick’s College in Gardiner’s Hill) and two schools in Dublin ( St. Dominic’s Secondary School, Ballyfermot and Kylemore College, Ballyfermot).

Speaking at the launch of the programme in Cork, DPS Director Michael Mulhall said:

“Our vision is that through working in partnership with parents, schools and other key stakeholders from the education sector we can support students in areas of educational disadvantage to achieve the best Leaving Cert possible and progress to third level university and further education. This in turn will provide better career opportunities and better job prospects to the selected students.”

“Over the next 4 years DPS will provide significant financial investment in the participating schools. This will enable the schools to provide additional supports in the following areas:

  • Easter revision camps
  • Summer schools
  • Oral language preparation
  • Gaeltacht scholarships
  • Motivational workshops
  • Personal development
  • Science and lecture labs workshops
  • College visits
  • Study related trips
  • Site visits to pharmaceutical companies
  • ICT Supports
  • Student Bursaries

DPS is being partnered in its Student Support Programme by a number of third level institutions.
