The information session is free; as is the service provided by WISE.Employment Advisor Grainne Boyle will deliver the information session and hopes that this initiative will empower women and close the gender gap in the workforce.She explained to Donegal Woman how it works.“The type of education would be short accredited courses that would upskill women to be able to undertake a job in the future. It’s also specific for women as the Department of Justice & Equality and the European Social Fund are looking to bridge the gap in gender equality in the workforce. “The only eligibility criteria for inclusion on the project is that the women need to be unemployed and NOT claiming a job seekers payment. The women can, however, be claiming lone parents, carers, disability or they may also be a dependent adult on a partner or spouses job seekers payment.“The topics discussed will be an overview of the project and how we might be able to help with returning to the workforce. It will also be a chance for the ladies attending to ask questions and to suggest other requirements that women returning to the workforce would like to see being provided.” The WISE project aims to help women with the following;Provide guidance from a dedicated personal employment advisorAdvice and assistance with … CV, interview preparation, job applicationsCareer planning and job brokeringAccess to employment opportunitiesSupport in your new job for the first six monthsConfidence and motivational buildingTraining and development opportunitiesPositive, personal marketingSelf-employment support and guidance The WISE project is an ESF funded scheme with the Department of Justice and Equality that is being provided by People First for free.Information day for women striving to upskill and rejoin work force was last modified: August 18th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:information daywiseWomenlast_img
