JobFit Castlebar this week celebrated the successful completion by participants of the training programme at an awards ceremony held at Breaffy House Hotel, where the Mayor of Castlebar, Councillor Ger Deere presented certificates.
The innovative JobFit programme supported people who were unemployed, or who had left the education system early, in getting a job or moving on to further education or employment-related training. JobFit offered participants a personalised programme lasting up to 13 weeks including free skills training, nationally-recognised qualifications, free job search support and free work placements with local employers.
JobFit Castlebar participants have been particularly successful, with more than 30 entering employment and 176 FETAC qualifications having been achieved.
JobFit was delivered by TBG Learning in partnership with National Learning Network – both Rehab Group companies – and funded by the Labour Market Activation Fund of the Department of Education and Skills and the European Social Fund.
