Lindsey Liston and Edel O'Donnell work on the Destination Programme.
The Destination College Programme works in partnership with local Secondary schools, education providers and community based projects to support students from backgrounds, who in the past, would not have traditionally progressed to 3rd level education. Our aim is to ensure that such students have the opportunities and supports to fulfil their educational potential and aspirations by breaking down the barriers that impede upon their access to, and participation in, 3rd level education.
The programme seeks to achieve this through:
In-school peer mentoring
After-school Academic Support
Parent and guardian support programme, and
A transition and scholarship programme
