The Healthcare Opportunities programme will be run at various locations throughout Cork and Limerick over a three year period offering participants the opportunity to gain a Healthcare Assistant Level 5 qualification.

The programme is specifically aimed at women who have been out of the workforce and who are not in receipt of a Jobseekers Allowance (for all other payments, please contact us and we can advise you on eligibility).

Funding is being provided under the Employability strand of PEIL, to promote gender equality and to create new employment opportunities for women.
