Begin Again

The Begin Again™ programme offers employers the opportunity to be host companies for 12 weeks for unemployed participants.  This will allow companies to develop projects and/or capabilities that they may be otherwise unable to afford in the current climate.

Candidates will be matched to appropriate host companies and will be afforded the opportunity to demonstrate their potential to employers, to develop new knowledge and skills, remain close to the employment market, network with peers, and avail of personalised mentoring.

The programme will be delivered country wide based on demand.  Entry to the programme will be by competitive selection based on an initial application form and telephone interview.  Companies wishing to get involved as a host employer, or those who are unemployed and interested in participating in the course can contact Yvette Higgins on 071 or Paula Crowley at 091 755736 for further information.

The programme is fully funded under the Labour Market Activation Fund operated by the Department of Education and Skills.  The four month programme involves:
  • 10 day classroom training programme
  • 12 weeks directed work placement with project work
  • One-to-one mentoring
  • Networking with industry professionals
