Time to Change

A major focus of SECAD’s work is supporting people who have been out of paid employment for some time and need some assistance in deciding what to do next.  SECAD’s Time to Change course is designed to enable people to decide what the next step should be in their lives.  The course will be running again in Cobh, Ballincollig, Midleton and Youghal starting during the second week in February.

 

What is Time to Change

It is a free 10 week course which helps identify personal strengths and build self-confidence.  Assistance is provided with deciding what to do next – find a job, return to education or training or to start a business.  Participants receive one to one help with creating a personal plan.  There are separate sessions on financial supports and how to access job schemes or courses and also on CV and interview preparation.

 

Opportunities Mornings

If you would like to find out more and meet the tutors and past participants, please come along to our opportunities mornings in Cobh on Monday, 3rd February in the Sirius Arts Centre, in Midleton on Wednesday, 5th February in Midleton Community Forum and in Youghal on Thursday, 6th February in Cumann na Daoine.

 

You will also have the opportunity to meet with the agencies operating in your area including SECAD, Dept of Social Protection, ETB, Employability Cork, Cork Volunteer Centre, etc.

Are you under 25, unemployed and need help to plan your future?

SECAD is launching a new programme called Time2 Activ8 for young people which will be starting in Carrigaline in February 2014.  The course is aimed at young people who are unemployed and need help to plan their future.  Participants will learn skills that will help them to find a job or to source the education or training they need to pursue their ideal career.  There is also help for people who are looking at starting their own business.

 

It is aimed at all young people between the ages of 18 – 25.  Participants will receive one to one help to look at their options and plan their next step. There are separate sessions on financial supports and how to access job schemes or courses and also on CV and interview preparation.  So if you left school early and want to look at returning to education or you’ve lost a job and need to retrain, this is the course for you.

 

If you would like to sign up for the course or would like more information, please phone SECAD at 021 4613432 or email info@secad.ie
