We are delighted to announce a new youth employability initiative Career L.E.A.P. (Local Employment Action Partnership).

Career L.E.A.P. is a new work readiness training programme for young people aged 18-24 from marginalised backgrounds. It has been uniquely developed through a collaborative partnership of BITCI, businesses, Community Groups and Trinity College Dublin. We have come together with a view to reduce youth unemployment in local communities in Dublin’s north  inner city.  Career L.E.A.P. will provide evidence based, quality training, work experience and employment seeking support to marginalised youths.

Funded by the CDETB and Businesses, Career LEAP is a 12 month pilot study. If your business is interested in getting involved through, offering placements, delivering training or mentoring a young person, contact Gavin Hennessy Career LEAP Project Manager at ghennessy@bitc.ie or 018743848.

A big thank you to our 15 members companies already supporting the Career L.E.A.P initiative.
