About The Programme
The OpenSky Summer Skills programme, is a unique programme designed for young teenagers aged between 14 & 16 years old. The programme is intentionally aimed at teens in this age bracket due to the lack of employment opportunities given to them, due to their age. The programme gives participants an opportunity to work in a real working environment for a four-week paid work placement. Participants are each given their own work space, laptop and company email for the duration of the programme, again creating a real-life work experience.
A project is assigned to the group which requires them to work together as a team and independently.
In 2019 the project assigned to the group was “How OpenSky Data Systems could improve their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)”. Participants had to research the industry, develop ideas and ultimately present their CSR plan to the Board of Management at the end of the programme.
Participants would have daily meetings alongside their mentor discussing ideas and delegating areas of work to each other for the following day; working together like a real project management team!
The project allowed participants to gain experience in developing their research skills, emailing, learning appropriate phone call etiquette, time management, document preparation, PowerPoint & Microsoft to name a few.
Towards the end of the programme, the teenagers were asked to attend a mock interview with the Managing Director and were also given the opportunity to create a CV alongside an OpenSky employee to include all their new skills and experience.
