Second Providers operating LTIs may identify a specific community-based project that will, by way of a collaborative approach with the ETB, enable learners to acquire the necessary skills to carry out the project related tasks and, in turn, provide a useful service to the community. This approach allows learners to develop valuable employment-related skills, knowledge and competence while contributing to their community.
To ensure that the training identified is relevant, prospective Second Providers must undertake a comprehensive analysis of the needs of the unemployed within their community, the levels of unemployment and the potential labour market or progression opportunities that may be available to learners on completion of training.
The programme can support accredited training (NFQ Levels 3, 4 or 5) for a wide range of sectors, including, for example: Environment, Genealogy, Heritage, Tourism, Arts, Sports Coaching, Catering, ICT, Digital Media.
Our Community Training Officer will offer a full briefing on the LTI and the application process.
