SCOPE OF SERVICES REQUIRED

We require the delivery of an Employability Programme. The core
outcome for all potential participants, is a programme to build up
confidence and the provision of specific supports to work alongside
them on the journey to employment.

Many of our potential participants have been out of the workforce for
some time. The Tullacmongan Peace Impact Programme intend to work with
some of the support agencies to adopt a new employability programme
that will be developed specifically around the needs of adults. This
programme should include coaching delivered on a part-time one to one
basis, to support clients to find employment or participate in further
education or training. The result of this programme will be that each
individual will have a personal action plan, which should include up
to date CV and identified training needs that will encourage them to
find employment and/or other certs needed for gainful employment i.e.
Safepass, Manual Handling, First Aid etc.

We plan to engage **Apply on the website** adults on this programme.

It is envisaged that the programme will be a mixture of group and one
to one training/mentoring and will include modules that could be
accredited. These modules/units could be mixture of QQI level 3 and 4
- which will bring people up to a work standard for all jobs and/or
Skills towards Enabling Progression e.g. - similar to the Step-Up
and/or Gateway to progression programme

Any programme will need to be flexible and responsive, with an option
for the delivery of a range of general and pre-vocational
qualifications. They need to be devised with the aim to progress
learners into further learning and/or employment. They also may
contain many of the units from the popular qualifications so can be
used in their place. These qualifications will need to be of
particular benefit to those learners who want to progress into other
further or higher education courses, or into new work area are
returning, or planning to return, to work and/ or who are seeking to
update and/or add to their employment skills. Potential participants
would also benefit from alternative approaches to curriculum and
learning and may want to test out a vocational area to inform their
career/employment choices. They may have not previously achieved
success in educational routes and may need to develop their literacy
and/or numeracy skills.
