|New Partnership with Bank of Ireland
We’re delighted to announce that we have partnered with Bank of Ireland and together we are rolling out BizWorld Ireland workshops in primary schools nationwide facilitated by Bank of Ireland staff.
Throughout 2016, we are training 100 Bank of Ireland staff members around the country as BizWorld Ireland tutors. This means they can run two day workshops with primary students in their local schools. Workshops feature everything from brainstorming to business development and finally the Dragon’s Den style pitch of the business.
With Bank of Ireland’s support, the partnership aims to provide 250 workshops to primary school children by the end of 2016, doubling to 500 in its second year. Over 250 Bank of Ireland staff members are expected to be trained and taking part by end of 2017.
Having Bank of Ireland on board is a real game-changer for us here at BizWorld Ireland. Since we first started offering workshops in 2011, the level of interest from primary schools has grown significantly but we simply did not have the resources and manpower to meet the demand.
