New Communities Partnership (NCP) Dublin has commenced a four-week free employment training on career and personal development for migrants in Limerick this November.

The programme, which helps migrants looking for employment or career progression is organised by NCP’s Migrant Access Program (MAP) in conjunction with Tait House Community Enterprise Limerick.

The programme is open to all migrants including European Union (EU) citizens and those who have the right to work in Ireland and runs between November 7 to November 29.

MAP Project Coordinator Mrs Doris Abuchi-Ogbonda said: “Economic participation and contribution is crucial to a migrants successful integration into the community and society as a whole.”

“Being a taxpayer builds confidence and respect and empowers a migrant to challenge certain narratives and stereotypes. This is what we at NCP’s MAP are working to achieve with the support of other stakeholders and the Government.”

The four-week training will equip participants with a better understanding of  recruitment vocabulary, and how to prepare a CV  and cover letter.

They will also receive personalised career guidance on job training and education opportunities.

Mrs Ogbonda is optimistic that based on the interest shown by industries and corporate bodies at the MAP and Business In The Community (BITC) job fair held on October 4 2018 at the Dublin Institute of Technology, industry stakeholders will embrace the vision of having an inclusive and diverse work environment.

The main goal for participants is to find their dream jobs, according to MAP course facilitator  Hanna Dabrowska, who said: “The process is to explore your skills, opportunities and work on the jobs you will love to do.”

Social Inclusion and Community Activity Program (SICAP) officer at Tait House, Tess Kelly said that SICAP provides  extra one-to-one  support to individuals and also help people overcome barriers and get to where they would want to be.

The training continues at the Tait House Community Enterprise, Collins Avenue Roxboro Road, from 9.30am-2.30pm on November  21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th.
