Eye4Education came into school on Friday 15th June to deliver their Interview & Assessment Programme.  All of our LVI pupils were involved.  They participated in a 3-stage assessment centre, incorporating an application form for a specific post, an aptitude test and an individual interview.  Ten business partners and six members of Eye4Education team were brought in to conduct the assessments.  They included:

Business Advisors

  • Joanna Barclay – NIE Networks
  • Janet Bradley – Capita
  • Colin Lauder – BBC Consultant
  • Dave Murphy – North City Business Centre
  • Bill Calladine – Belfast Trust
  • Karen Wright – Business in the Community
  • Louise Henry – NI Housing Executive
  • Amy Kingston – PWC


  • Karen Davidson
  • Darren Nixon
  • Alice Quinn

The pupils battled hard for the seven job opportunities available.  The standard was very high from the start especially in the aptitude tests.  All of the business advisers were impressed with the quality of the applicants.  Deliberation was long and intense about who should be given one of the seven posts.  The deserving winners were:

  • Cormac McGowan
  • Katie Baird
  • Rosie McQueen
  • Rory Flynn
  • Orla O’Kane
  • Tom Stewart
  • Rachel Holden

Many congratulations to our winners.
