Leaders on our Level

Every year, since 2007, Transition Year students in Terenure College have organised a unique Conference on leadership. From our early beginnings in Croke Park Conference Centre we have grown to now fill the National Convention Centre! The Conference is attended by over 1,000 Transition Year Students from schools all over Ireland. 

Students attending the Conference, entitled Leaders On Our Level, are addressed by a diverse line-up of speakers such as; entrepreneurs, business leaders and sporting personalities. Over the years we have had such Speakers as Irishman Mark Pollock, who was a student and international rower with a promising career when he suddenly lost his sight; Enda McNulty of Mc Nulty Performance, specialise in performance, culture and wellbeing – particularly focus on Sport; Niall ‘Bressie’ Breslin, musican and mental health ambassador; Denis O’ Brien, one of Irelands leading entrepreneurs; Fr. Peter McVerry, who has been working with Dublin’s young homeless for more than 30 years and Wilhelm Verwoerd, Glencree Centre for Reconciliation.

Each speaker brings a unique perspective on what it takes to succeed and to make the most out of our talents. This Conference arms students with the inspiration and motivation necessary to achieve their full potential. It also offers a unique opportunity to students learn from each leaders individual experience.

The key objectives of the Leaders on Our Level Conference are:

  • To expose students at an early stage to the concepts of good leadership in business and the community.
  • To introduce students to positive role models across a variety of disciplines
  • To help bridge the social divide
  • Provide a fun based learning experience
