As part of Link Modules the 5th year students researched and organised a class visit to the Waterford based Beat FM studios. They researched the entrepreneurial skills involved in setting up and running a success regional radio station. The students got to meet presenters Niall Power and Dave Cronin and some of the sound engineers behind the scenes. They also prepared questions which helped to prepare them for the working world such as what skills and qualities and employers looks for, how to deal with difficulties in the workplace, the impact of social media etc. On the return to college students took part in an interactive SWOT analysis of Carrickbyrne Wood in preparation for their Leaving Certificate Case Study next year.
