The People 1st Academies team of Jonny, Michael and Ruth are gearing up for a busy start to the new year. January 2023, will see not one, not two, but six different employment academies running in partnership with local councils across Northern Ireland. All with the same aim- of helping participants accelerate their route to employment within a variety of sectors.
If you are unemployed or working less than 16 hours a week and not in full time education or training then you are normally eligible to take part and by giving up a week of your time, you can really make a difference in your life and get onto a great career pathway. Each academy normally lasts five days and over this time, the academy team will help deliver helpful information about the jobs available in each sector, the skills that are useful for each role and also help prepare you for interview in an enjoyable and supportive process. We have received amazing feedback from those who participated in our academies during 2022 and we cannot wait to help more people during this coming year.
