The Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan TD, will launch a new partnership between BizWorld Ireland and Mary Immaculate College (MIC) on November 30th.  

A new model for teaching enterprise skills to primary school children will be unveiled by BizWorld Ireland as part of the launch.  During the event, Fiona McKeon (pictured), CEO of BizWorld Ireland, will give an overview of this new model, which involves her organisation training MIC students in the delivery of the BizWorld programme.  The programme teaches primary school children about money management, critical thinking and enterprise in fun and creative ways.  

Commenting in advance, Fiona McKeon said: “The Irish education system has not traditionally offered business programmes at primary level, and we’re delighted that steps are being taken to address this issue.  Our education system must not only support young people to acquire the skills employers need; it must also equip them with the skills to become employers themselves.”
