Asidua & Fujitsu Visitors

 

The year 14 Business Studies (Double Award) Applied class recently had the pleasure of meeting with and learning from Eamonn O’ Neill a second year Apprentice Software Developer who works for the International company Fujitsu.

Representatives from this company have been visiting our department for the last ten years giving vital information to students for their Investing in People Unit.

Fujitsu are Championship Winners in this area and the expertise and information that Eamonn provided is important to our students’ success. Eamonn gave a very interesting presentation and answered many questions. Fujitsu are a valued industry link for the department and we would like to thank Eamonn and the company for all that they do to enhance our students’ education.

Asidua CEO Visits the Business Studies Department.

On Friday 28th Oct, our year 13 Applied Students had the great pleasure and honour of hearing from one of Northern Irelands most successful businessmen. Dr Steve Brankin is the former CEO of Asidua, an IT Services company. Steve gave up his time once again to give a very informative and interesting presentation on the Enterprising Manager, something which he himself personifies. Steve ensured students are aware of how important it is to be enterprising when managing staff and how their motivation and satisfaction in the workplace is vital to business success. Both the presentation and question and answer session gave our students a fantastic and practical insight into their classroom learning. The department would like to extend their thanks to Dr Brankin for his time and experience.

Year 14 Visit University Open Days

As part of their Careers programme in school, all of our Year 14 students went to visit our two local universities at the end of last week.

On Thursday we went to the Ulster University campus, and on Friday it was the turn of Queen’s University Belfast in the morning and then on to Methody in the afternoon for their Higher Education Convention.

These Open Days are a real help to our students who are making their decisions about courses this year and completing UCAS forms.
