Relaunch of Irish Funds' TY Programme
Tuesday, 10 October 2023
As part of our continuing talent strategy, our Financial Literacy TY (Transition Year) Programme is being relaunched in schools this month for the current 2023/24 academic year. Please find the new 2023/24 Irish Funds TY Programme brochure where you can learn more details.
We successfully launched this programme as a pilot last year in twelve schools nationally. Our lead facilitator Eibhlin Johnston, Resiliency Hub was supported by many industry leads who volunteered to share their real life examples and career experience in the classroom. The programme consists of fifteen learning modules delivered over six weeks in hourly sessions to 410 students, accompanied by fifteen industry leads and we hope to be joined by even more throughout the year.
This year, we have added new interactive workbooks and further developed our materials. We will be looking for more industry volunteers for this academic year to be a part of this programme, full training will be provided. Together, we aim to promote the early learning of financial literacy and critical life skills, through the lens of the investment funds and asset management industry.
