Taxi drivers across the country have been taking part in Skills for Work projects aimed at helping them to study for their upcoming certificate test. The Skills for Work Programme in partnership with the National Transport Authority have been developing specifically focused support material to assist participants on these courses.
The new materials will be ready to use for the Autumn 2012 term.
Debenhams department stores have joined the ranks of employers taking part in the SFW Programme. A new group of workers from Debenhams in the Blanchardstown Centre, Dublin, have taken up the challenge and begun a training course including communications and IT skills.
It is expected this new partnership will benefit Debenhams employees in other parts of the country soon.
