The Minister of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation & Science Simon Harris paid a virtual visit to Collinstown Park Community College today. The Minster met with learners – Claire, Luke and Amanda – who shared their learning journey. He was particularly interested in female participation in IT, lifelong learning, Traineeship and future careers in growth industries. Staff from Collinstown and DDLETB joined the call and detailed the relationship with Microsoft Ireland which led to the establishment of the first Microsoft Data Centre Academy in Europe.
We are very grateful to the Minister for taking the time to visit Collinstown Park.
