North Tipperary LEADER Partnership under its Local and Community Development Programme initiated several training courses in water metering during 2012.
Minister Phil Hogan T.D. recently announced that the water metering programme will commence in July 2013 and will run until July 2016. NT LEADER Partnership is now accepting applications for their “Jobs for the Future Programme” under two innovative funding schemes. The first initiative “Skills Based/Labour Market Training” provides a range of courses aimed at providing participants with accredited training with a focus on improving labour market readiness. Accredited courses identified for delivery during 2013 include Wood Stove Installation, Security, Working at Heights, Food Hygiene, Intellectual Disability Studies, Care of the Elderly and other labour market programmes.
The second initiative under our “Jobs for the Future Programme” is entitled Jobs Skills Grants and provides financial assistance to those who need to retrain or upskill and obtain a certified or FETAC accredited vocational skill. In 2012 this scheme supported over 100 people in North Tipperary to acquire an accredited qualification.
