Pramerica Systems Ireland and Mulroy College in Milford have announced the
launch of a mentoring programme operated under the Schools’ Business
Partnership and the Student Mentoring programmes, facilitated by Business in
the Community Ireland (BITCI).

“We are very grateful to the employees from Pramerica for making a two-year
commitment to the students here in Mulroy College,” said Fiona Temple,
Principal, Mulroy College, Milford. “The mentors will really help to focus the
minds of students and to inspire them to achieve what they want from their
schooling.”

Over the next two years, six Pramerica employees will mentor Fifth Year
students at Mulroy to help prepare them for the transition from school to
employment or to higher education. The students and mentors will meet at least
one hour a month.

“Pramerica is delighted that so many of our employees have volunteered to
become involved in the mentoring programme at Mulroy College,” said Emma
McCleary, Human Resources Generalist at Pramerica. “The programme not only
will benefit the students, but it also will give our employees the chance to
develop their leadership, team-building, interpersonal and communication
skills.”

Elaine McFadden,Regional Coordinator – Donegal, BITCI, said that: “The
mentoring programme has been a great success on a nationwide level for so many
students and also for the mentors. BITCI recognises the leadership shown by
Pramerica in pioneering the Mentoring Programme in Donegal and in delivering
for the third year on our Skills @ Work Programme with Mulroy College.”

Funded under the National Development Plan, The Schools’ Business Partnership
(SBP) aims to match over 150 post primary schools in Ireland with a local
business. Currently, 148 schools are matched.
