ASPIRE continues to provide employability support during the pandemic.

18th May 2020

Local employability initiative, ASPIRE, would like to advise the public that they are still providing FREE employability support with the delivery of various learning and training opportunities in these challenging times.

ASPIRE, a Fermanagh and Omagh District Council led employability initiative, provides support and assistance to individuals who are unemployed, working part-time or perhaps working reduced hours due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Siobhan Currie said, “ASPIRE has been supporting the unemployed and economically inactive across the district since 2015 with great success and staff continue to provide excellent support remotely at this time.

I know that Project officers, tutors and the wider ASPIRE team are maintaining regular contact with participants who are experiencing difficulty in obtaining employment particularly at this very challenging time. While its offices in Omagh and Enniskillen are currently temporarily closed as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff of ASPIRE are continuing to offer support to all current and potential participants. Remotely, ASPIRE is providing a range of support such as CV Development, Job Search, Application Support, Interview Support and IT Training in addition to accredited training opportunities in Health and Safety and Manual Handling training. I would urge you to get in touch and avail of the expert advice and support available from the staff at ASPIRE.

ASPIRE is funded by the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014-2020 and the Department for the Economy until 31 March 2022  .

To avail of this support, Contact ASPIRE via email on aspire@fermanaghomagh.com or telephone 07799471448 Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm.
