TORC partners with Tuath Housing on new employment and training support programme beginning this September

We know many residents have found the past year difficult. Finding new opportunities during a pandemic is especially tough. We want to help our residents to learn new skills that will help them to put their best foot forward to begin a new career path through employment, apprenticeships, further education, or training.

TORC Sustainable Housing residents are now able to enrol in an exciting new employment and training programme called “Stand out from the Crowd” created by Tuath Housing which will begin this September. The programme is a series of webinars to help residents build confidence and find supports in a competitive jobs market. With the support of expert speakers from Empower, Dress for Success, Carr Communications and Grow Remote a series of free webinars have been created to run throughout the month of September. This four-week programme will help break down barriers into employment and help attendees with their job applications, C.V preparation, mock ZOOM interviews, learning how to dress the part for interview and much more.

There are 4 free webinars in the programme;
Empower – Wednesday 8th September – 5.30pm -6.30pm
Carr Communications – Wednesday 15th September – 5.30pm -6.30pm
Dress for Success – Wednesday 22nd September- 5.30pm – 6.30 pm
