Delighted to meet Svenja from Germany who we arranged a work placement for with HabitatNI! Svenja was based in Lisburn and worked in the Habitat ReStore.
The Habitat ReStore is the hub for their work, connecting the local and global. By selling donated new and used building and home improvement materials, it serves thousands of families who need help to improve their homes at low cost and diverts tons of material from landfill. ReStore delivers intentional volunteering opportunities and raises funds to build hope and homes around the world.
This event was part of a number of activities run by Network for Enterprising Women. The Network is for women who run their own business, Support a partner in business, Aspire to be in business, Work in the corporate, voluntary or community sectors or Work for an organisation in the area that supports enterprise development.
This event looked at some of the issues facing women who run their own business.
One of the many ways to develop your language skills is to volunteer with other young people in projects in other parts of Europe. Languages are essential for business and local companies in Dungannon highlighted how they need languages skills daily in their work.
Delighted to speak at the launch of Lid+ programme.
‘LID+’ is a year-long programme of free services
and events that will promote, inform and provide access to, not to mention support your potential involvement in the Erasmus+ Programme.
The Inside Out Programme, based in N Ireland is one of only seven project funded by the EU Commission in the UK that is tasked with promoting the Erasmus+ programme. ‘LID+’ offers a free bespoke service that aims to increase participation in EU Mobility activities over the coming year.
The project will work specifically to target (i) those interested in Volunteering Abroad (ii) taking part in Youth Exchanges and (iii) or developing other Key Action1 Mobility Projects including planning meetings, training programmes and seminars.
We joined local employers to help young people understand what is expected of them when they begin work and the importance of having some language skills whether they pan to live and work in this region or elsewhere.
Working with pupils to understand how languages are important and needed by local business to work with clients and colleagues across Europe and the opportunities languages provide to find employment.
Every year we are delighted to speak at this event in Magherafelt to support students make informed decisions about their GCSE choices by sharing our experience of working across Europe and the need for languages in a modern workplace.
Delivered cultural awareness training to women who are part of a women’s centre that welcomes migrant and local women to develop their skills to return to work. Great discussion on cultural clashes!
