Programme Executive, Education & Jobs
Ciara is based in the Belfast office and works within the PLACE Team or Education and Jobs Team. She manages the Time to… suite of primary school programmes – Time to Read, Time 2 Count and Time to Code.
These programmes currently have over 500 volunteers from across Northern Ireland supporting primary pupils with their literacy, numeracy and digital skills.
While enhancing these essential skills, volunteers also help local children develop socially and emotionally by helping to build their confidence and self-esteem.
Where possible we aim to raise the pupils aspirations by facilitating a visit to a local workplace, often that of their volunteer.
Ciara also has responsibility for any bespoke education programmes led by our member companies that have a connection to the Time to… themes or local schools.
