Junior Achievement Ireland (“Junior Achievement”) is part of a worldwide organisation reaching out to 9.3 million young people each year. Junior Achievement aims to inspire and motivate young people to realise their potential by valuing education and understanding how to succeed in the world of work. This programme is operated in both primary and secondary schools and fosters a spirit of enterprise within participating schools.
As part of the Junior Achievement programme, a series of ‘Guru lectures’ are organised in participating schools across the country where students enjoy presentations from business leaders on their respective professions. This gives the students the opportunity to meet with members of the business community and learn about different types of careers. This year, Kilian Doyle, Director in EisnerAmper Ireland’s Financial Services Group, visited Our Lady of Mercy College, Beaumont where students enjoyed listening to Kilian discussing his career in accounting and giving career advice to the students.
