Grants for training courses include a higher education grant of up to €5,000 annually, further education grant of €3,000 annually and up to €3000 to cover course expenses every year.
Career guidance services will also be provided to eligible participants which will also include supports with developing an action plan to identify training and development needs, job search strategies, CV development, interview techniques and post interview supports.
