School Activities

Today, more than ever, a college education is necessary for a good quality of life and career opportunities. However, many groups and communities are still under-represented in higher education. TAP works with schools, colleges, pupils, parents and communities to make sure that everyone who could benefit from a college education has the opportunity to go to college.

Participation in TAP programmes is only available to our partner schools. These schools have already been selected and can be seen by clicking the link below.

Through our School and Community Outreach Links (SCOL), TAP works with 19 primary and 20 second-level schools in Dublin to:

  • get students involved in learning
  • increase students’ interest in going to university
  • improve students’ junior and leaving certificate exam results
  • help create a college-going culture within the school
  • encourage parents and guardians to support academic achievement among their children.  

To achieve these goals, SCOL offers a variety of outreach activities to schools. These activities take place in school and on the Trinity campus. Trinity academic staff and our TAP ambassadors help us to run these activities.
