TCPID School of Education Research Seminar
The TCPID hosted a School of Education research seminar on Thursday December 17th.
The title of the seminar, which was held online was: Staff, graduates and partners of the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities on linking with the business community to support students with intellectual disabilities to transition to work.
The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities gave an insight into the development of their innovative Certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice programme. They explored the wide reaching impact of this programme and how they are looking to replicate versions of the programme throughout the country. The team highlighted the core importance of tailored occupational therapy supports for students to help them with the numerous transitions throughout their Trinity College education, including the transition beyond College into employment. They also discussed the essential support of the business community in providing employment opportunities for graduates of the TCPID. The case study for the purpose of this seminar was the hugely successful partnership with EY.
A huge thank you to our EY colleagues Brenda Kealy, Colin Farquharson and Stephen Ryan for giving up their time to take part in the seminar with us.
