Georgina Allen, fourth year student in Mullingar CC gives us an insight into her time on the Skills @ Work Programme. 

PR Mullingar CC“C&F Automotives came to our school and opened up our eyes to the world of business. They visited us first, telling us about the ‘jewellery’ (trims and fittings) they make for well known car brands such as Bentley. Our fifth year LCVP group went for a class trip to their factory and they gave us a presentation, a chat and a tour, telling us all about their industry.  After providing C&F with a CV and cover letter, we had mock interviews for a position there. It was quite a challenge but it really helped us to build our confidence. They gave us honest feedback on our performance, which will really benefit us when we are going for a proper interview. C&F played a big part in our fifth year LCVP programme, teaching us a lot about interview skills and communication skills and building our awareness of the importance of the customers’ needs in any business. Thank you C&F.”
