Sixth Form Success Stories

Two Year 14 St Columb’s College students were selected from over 300 other applicants to win places on the highly sought after Deloitte, BrightStart Higher Level Apprenticeship programme.

Luke Cassidy and Joe McCartie have both been offered places on this scheme which opens up the prospect of a permanent job with Deloitte, a very competitive salary, while simultaneously working to achieve a BSc in Business Technology with Ulster University.  

This ‘learn while they earn’ opportunity to work for one the largest professional services companies in the world will ensure a debt-free pathway into this highly sought after industry.  

‘Our focus in St Columb’s has always been to help students make the right decisions about their future and support them in seeking out the best opportunities.  Both Joe and Luke are enthusiastic and committed young men who have demonstrated through the rigorous application process, their determination and commitment to achieve their best.  We wish them luck in their future endeavours’
