A local employability initiative will help graduates’ boost their employment prospects by facilitating a free three week graduate programme from Monday 17 July – 4 August 2017 in locations in Enniskillen and Omagh.

The ASPIRE Employability Programme, which offers support and assistance to unemployed people aged 16 years and over seeking employment, has announced the launch of a three week Graduate Programme.

The free package of graduate support aims to boost graduates’ employment prospects through professional development. This includes advice from industry leaders, guidance on branding yourself, entrepreneurship and start a business advice, accredited training, ICT for Business/Work environment, CV revamp, Presentation Skills, Interview Process preparation, Building Resilience and more.

Graduates will be focussed on preparation for employment and how to optimise their opportunities for success in a competitive market.

The Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Stephen McCann said: “ASPIRE developed the Graduate programme as it recognised the difficulties faced by graduates making the transition from education to employment upon leaving university.

The programme, which is part funded by the Northern Ireland European Social Fund 2014- 2020 and the Department for the Economy, will challenge graduates to prepare for this next stage, providing practical guidance, developing key employment skills and attributes, with training and development designed to support the progression from university to the world of work.”
