The School Partnership Programme enables Year 11 and 12 students in the school sector to sample areas including, digital imaging, joinery, beauty, hospitality, hairdressing and motor mechanics, in order to make a more informed career decision.  The students on the SPP programme attend SRC one day per week for two years and achieve recognised qualifications on completion of their studies.

Student speaker at the event was Aimee Pearson from Kilkeel High School who kindly outlined her experience of the SPP programme at SRC.

SPP top student of the year went to Gareth Knight from Newtownhamilton High School and the Endeavour award went to Krystian Rosiak from Newry High School.

Brian Doran, Chief Executive, Southern Regional College, commenting on the close partnership working between local schools and SRC said: “The partnership between Southern Regional College and the schools in the Newry and Mourne Area Learning Community provides opportunities to pupils to benefit from a wider curriculum by undertaking a range of courses not available to them in school.  The various courses lead to nationally-recognised qualifications that will not only help pupils make better career choices but will also help them get employment in the continuing challenging economic environment.”
