The IASE’s national Job Shadow Day (Wednesday 22nd April) gave Josh Heery, a student with National Learning Network in Mullingar, the chance to job shadow Garda Bláithín Moran in Mullingar Garda station. Josh spent the day learning the law of the land with the local Gardaí in Mullingar.

He said, “I enjoyed job shadowing with the Gardaí. It was a great experience. I got to look at fingerprinting and the camera room but the courtroom was my favourite. Thanks to Garda Bláithín Moran for the opportunity."

Job Shadow Day is an initiative organised by the Irish Association of Supported Employment and the idea behind it is to encourage integration of people with disabilities with local employers.
