WEXFORD-BASED ACCESS Community Development Project recently celebrated their 8th Annual Awards Ceremony in Westgate Training Centre with the customary support from the business and voluntary community, the management and staff of Access and past students.
Board member Maria Brennan presented the students with their QQI Level 4 Major Award in Employment Skills, Level 5 Occupational First Aid, Cardiac Responder and ECDL certificates to a group of young people and talked about the great achievement for each learner who completed the programme.
Marian Donegan, project co-ordinator, expressed her gratitude to the WWETB in sponsoring the delivery of the ninth programme which commenced in September of this year, and thanked all those who has supported the programme through the year.
She said the enormous success of this programme is due to the combination of skill and training resources used: Academic and non-academic training the input from local business organisations, practical work experience, but above all the support and encouragement that learners get during their yearlong training programme from the tutors and staff of Access. Access CDP strives to promote and raise awareness of their programmes and other services and facilities available in the local community. We will continue to deliver community training to those most excluded and to provide professional training and education at competitive cost to businesses, as well as to their future employees.
