Skills for Life & Work


Kyla is a third-year student on the Skills for Life and Work programme in Slieve Gullion. Kyla is currently pursuing a vocational area in catering. She is undertaking her work placement at the Spar convenience shop located on the Dublin road.
During her placement, Kyla dedicates one day per week to assisting at the deli counter, where she contributes to the preparation and packing of the diverse array of delicious foods offered by the Spar shop. On her second day, she focuses on customer service, engaging with customers on the shop floor and ensuring a welcoming environment for all. We extend our gratitude to Alistair and Craig for providing Kyla with this valuable opportunity to enhance her skills.
