Hi, my name is Clodagh and I am from Dublin. I am now qualified as a Primary School Teacher, after recently completing my Bachelor of Education degree this year in Dublin City University with a specialism in Digital Learning.
I took part in the STInt Programme last summer and I really enjoyed the experience. I wanted to further develop the skills I learned last summer before starting in my first year of teaching in September. I have a passion for digital learning and I hope to bring all of my new learnings back into my own classroom this year.
During my internship in EY, I worked in the Business Consulting team. I worked on projects both internal and external to my team. I learned how to organise and lead meetings with various members of my team as we discussed my project work. I was able to use some of the skills that I developed through the Bachelor of Education degree such as cooperation, communication and organisational skills. I also completed various presentations which helped me develop my speaking and presenting skills which are vital in the classroom. Overall, my internship in EY was extremely enjoyable and it has enabled me to learn about STEM outside of the classroom so that I can take back my learnings to inspire and engage my own students in STEM subjects.
