An Employment, Education and Training Expo was held in the Clonmel Park Hotel on Tuesday April 17.
This Event was modelled on the successful ‘New Beginnings’ Exhibition hosted by the LCDP South Tipperary Development in 2010
The information was targeted at long term unemployed, recently unemployed and those in the labour force needing to up-skill.
Mental Health was identified as a key issue during 2011 and the Expo included a range of support services to sustain wellbeing and positive mental health.
As in other years, despite the general reduction in staffing levels and increasing strain on services, all providers were eager to participate and to engage with the public. Feedback from providers indicated that a considerable number of appointments were made on the day for subsequent take up.
A second Information EXPO will be held in the Excel Centre in Tipperary Town on April 24.
