Locals provided with new skills

06/10/2008

All the participants in the Sharing Places/Trading Places project put on by the WOMEN'STEC were either umemployed, unskilled, ethnic minorities or lone parents who shared a common dream of finding a new career path.

The project funded by URBAN II Community Initiative Programme and administered by the North Belfast Partnership as part of the European Regional Development Funds, provide OCN level II skills training in electrics, plumbing, joinery and digital devices to 60 North Belfast participants.

The project was also able to offer CSR Health and Safety training - a requirement for those hoping to work on a building site - to 39 people, including 18 from the Polish community who would not have been allowed to work in construction in Northern Ireland without this qualification.

In addition, 55 young people took part in a summer job sampling and training programme in joinery, electrics, plumbing and soldering.

"Many of these young people may not have done so well at school and this led to really low confidence. By sampling working in a trade, they were able to build up their confidence and see the possibilities for their future," said Patricia Fleming of WOMEN'STEC.
