The Programme targets secondary level pupils aged 11-18 living in  the Newry Neighbourhood Renewal Area  and Primary 7 pupils attending the 5 Primary Schools which service the  Newry Neighbourhood Renewal Area .

Partner schools:

The Programme’s purpose is to introduce young people from the Neighbourhood Renewal Area to the workings of the modern economy and specifically to the world of work and to provide them with guidance on the range of fulfilling career and personal development pathways open to them. 

A group of 25 Primary 7 pupils from the Partner Primary schools participate in a ‘Coder Dojo’ Programme annually. The aim of which is to demystify computer coding and to encourage an interest in mathematics and computing.
