Employability Skills Training
Employability skills training supports the social and professional inclusion of people who have difficulty accessing the labour market by providing the necessary vocational training.
Inspire also acts as a strategic partner for employers, families and other social actors promoting quality of life at work. Clients start their training by following general courses aimed at enhancing their skills and increasing their effectiveness at career exploration whilst assisting them in making realistic vocational choices.
In addition to this Inspire clients are offered the opportunity to further their training in a Vocational Training Centre area of their choice. Different organisations send work tasks to be done by clients at the Training Centre as part of their training or offer trainees the opportunity to conduct work at their company.
Support is a key element in the Employment Training Services offered by Inspire not only to clients but also organisations who have given our clients the opportunity to access the labour market.
Job Coaching; one to one job training and follow-on support, which consists of periodical visits to the employee on their respective jobs.
