Towards Occupation 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 participants 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 participant will feel more confident, aware and energised about their career/ direction and life opportunities, resulting in greater positive developments and more stress free living.
The commitment is for two mornings per week. The programme begins in March and will run until approximately the end of June in Avondhu Blackwater’s offices in Fermoy. If you would like more information on the programme, please contact Veronica on (025) 33411 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Towards Occupation is co-ordinated by Avondhu Blackwater Partnership and co-funded by the Department for Social Protection.
