Do you know someone who might benefit from some training or upskilling to help him/her get working? The Galway Rural Development SICAP team is running the autumn Learning for Life Roadshow workshops on CV preparation and interview skills as well as an interesting line-up of information on apprenticeships, job opportunities, and free training courses over the next two weeks.
Members of the public are welcome to this free event, in particular people who are currently out of work or thinking about returning to work. The events which are free of charge run from 10am to 1pm every day and take place in The Ard Rí Hotel, Tuam, on Thursday, September 28, and in The Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe, on Wednesday, October 4. Free tea and coffee will be available and all are welcome.
Learning for Life is showcasing job opportunities, apprenticeships, and free courses and training provided by GRETB (formerly VEC ), VTOS, Galway Rural Development Company, post Leaving Cert courses, Deptartment of Social Protection, Equal Ireland, Adult Literacy, NUI Galway, GMIT, and other colleges throughout the county. Representatives of the Tús and RSS schemes will provide information on opportunities in the community. Local employers with jobs in hospitality and homecare will be on hand also.
The Learning for Life series is part of the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP ) and Galway Rural Development Company is delivering this programme in County Galway.
