Dream Big Programme

On 8th May 2023 the Dream Big Programme kicked off. This programme originated from the challenge atim industry members face to attract talented staff who can support the future growth and ambition of the manufacturing companies in the Midlands region in Ireland.

Over the course of the week, 28 students (18 female) will visit five manufacturing companies to learn about the products they create and the people behind them. Each afternoon, students will engage in hands-on activity led by supporting partners ,Technology University of the Shannon, Athlone Campus, The Rediscovery Centre, VEX Robotics, Offaly County Council to develop key skills needed in the modern manufacturing facilities.

Aisling Nolan, Chief People and Information Officer, Mergon Group said “the Dream Big Programme is a really innovative approach to addressing the shortage of young people opting for careers in manufacturing and engineering. Mergon are delighted to partner with other Midlands based companies and the atim cluster to bring this progamme to life. We are particularly pleased that the programme has attracted so much interest from female students and we look forward seeing it deliver meaningful impact for the manufacturing sector and the students of the Midlands in the future”.

By working together collectively, we can make a real difference.
