Mayo College of Further Education and Training launches volunteer initiative.

Mayo College of Further Education is thrilled to announce an innovative addition to our curriculum, commencing September 2024. As part of this initiative, all our estimated 800 full- time students will participate in 10 hours of voluntary work, integral to their work experience modules. This endeavor promises a multitude of benefits, including:

  • Contributing a remarkable 8,000 voluntary hours within our region.
  • Inspiring our students to engage in voluntary activities, thereby enriching and supporting their local communities.
  • Fostering Transversal Skills: This initiative is designed to significantly nurture transversal skills among our students. By actively participating in voluntary work, students will have the opportunity to cultivate a diverse range of competencies pivotal for their holistic development. These skills encompass.
  • Communication Skills: Voluntary work necessitates interaction with a varied demographic, honing both verbal and non-verbal communication proficiencies.
  • Teamwork and Collaboration: Students will be immersed in collaborative endeavours, fostering teamwork and appreciation for diverse perspectives.
  • Problem-Solving and Critical Thinking: Real-world challenges encountered during voluntary work will stimulate critical thinking and innovative problem-solving techniques.
  • Leadership and Initiative: Voluntary activities inherently promote leadership and initiative-taking, empowering students to drive positive change.
  • Adaptability and Flexibility: Exposure to diverse environments fosters adaptability and flexibility, vital attributes in today’s dynamic world.
  • Time Management and Organizational Skills: Juggling voluntary commitments alongside academic responsibilities enables effective time management and organisational prowess.
  • Civic Responsibility and Ethical Awareness: Engagement in voluntary work nurtures a sense of civic responsibility and ethical consciousness, instilling a commitment to societal well-being.

To formally recognise the significant contribution of these 10 hours of voluntary work, they will be integrated into our Work Experience Certificate. This certificate serves as a testament to our students’ dedication to community service and the development of invaluable transversal skills. By acknowledging this commitment within their official certification, we affirm the importance of voluntary work as an integral aspect of holistic education.

We will be holding an Open Day on 22nd October from 12-2pm in all our locations for voluntary organisations to attend the college to recruit students to assist with them voluntary activities.
