Sector Specific English - EURES Cross Border Partnership
71 migrant job seekers across the border region took part in English for Employability sector specific training. Topics included; Nursing 1& 2; Workplace 1&2; Hotel and Hospitality; Care setting ; Construction; Absolute Beginners and Job Hunting.
Each participant wanted to find a job, a better job or improve their prospects of promotion.
Nursing 1 & 2 was successfully delivered in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, students wanted to better understand their colleagues and patients.
Based on this experience, the Hospital has decided to continue to deliver the course to its new arrivals on an ongoing basis.
