The Programme, in this case called the ELEVATE Training Programme is Co-ordinated by The Local Development Company and funded by the Department for Social Protection.

The Elevate Training Programme is specifically targeted at those individuals feeling isolated, and lacking in self esteem. There will be a particular focus on confidence building with a view to preparing participants to progress to mainstream training or education.
The key objectives of the Training Programme are to:
- Provide support guidance and training to individuals experiencing mental ill-health.
- Facilitate them to identify their personal occupational requirements and the pathways to achieving them
- Assist participants to access as independent a life as possible in social, cultural and economic terms, through the identification of progression opportunities and linkages to same.
The Training Modules are:
- Personal Development
- Life Skills
- CV Preparation and Interview Skills/ Progression Routes
The training will help to address blocks in the individuals career, work or relationships and will help identify the changes the client wishes to make in relevant areas of their life, through a clear plan of action in a focused and confident manner. At the end of the training programme, it is envisaged that the participants will feel more confident, aware and energised about their career/ direction and life opportunities, resulting in greater positive developments and more stress free living. Each course will run two mornings a week for approx. 15 weeks.
