To increase the employability of long-term unemployed people living in disadvantaged communities, or those who experience social exclusion, and to support them to move into mainstream employment or further training.
How is support from The Arthur Guinness Fund helping?
The Arthur Guinness Fund has provided us with the finances to develop and deliver our Work Accreditation Module training programme to participants. This is the equivalent of a Leaving Certificate on the National Framework of Qualifications. To date, our training staff have completed a total of 184 modules, with 67% obtaining a Merit grade or higher. We have also been able to refurbish part of the factory into a fantastic Learning Centre, providing participants with a bright, comfortable space that promotes and encourages learning.
