Access all areas: College launches work placement
THIRTY leading Irish companies will provide an internship for up to 45 DCU Access students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds throughout this summer.
The scheme, established in 1989, was the first of its kind in Ireland. Companies taking part include PwC and Pigsback.com.
Gemma Treacy, DCU Access student; former Dublin footballer Jason Sherlock, from DCU Educational Trust, Seán McElwain, DCU Access student; and Fiona Hudson, DCU Access Service, are pictured at the launch of the programme in Dublin City University's campus in Glasnevin yesterday.
