A new national recruitment training programme has been launched by the Government, with a focus on the recruitment of Irish people with disabilities.
The programme, which was launched this week, will see thousands of people with disability employed across the country to help recruit new staff to support the Government’s ambitious plan to recruit 2.5 million people with intellectual disabilities by 2020.
The Government said the aim of the programme is to ensure that Irish people who have been able to work for longer and are willing to relocate, or are in a position to relocate to, are more actively recruited into the Government and are available to fill the roles they are currently filling.
The new training programme is being developed with the support of the Government Innovation and Skills Programme, the Minister of Social Protection, Social Protection and Disability Services, Joan Burton and the Minister for Employment, Work and Training, Pádraig O’Sullivan.
The first training course, which will be run over the next two years, will teach a range of skills in various areas, including employment law, employment law compliance, employment practices, and working with disability groups, including people with learning disabilities, and those with autism.
It will also teach the latest skills in disability-related business and entrepreneurship.
The training programme will also be based on the principles of inclusion and inclusion, which is based on diversity and inclusion.
The aim is to develop a culture of inclusion for people with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities in all aspects of life, including jobs and employment, and to ensure the inclusion of people who may not be in positions of authority in society.
It is also aimed at helping people to identify the opportunities that employers are looking for in their area, and work towards a wider understanding of how to achieve greater inclusion.
Speaking to The Irish News at the launch of the training programme, Minister Burton said that a key part of the job is to build relationships with people with different abilities.
“I’m very much looking for the opportunities in the workplace to engage and learn from other people and we will be looking at a range and breadth of opportunities, not just in the physical sector, but in the mental sector, the social sector, in the community sector and so on.”
We’re also looking at opportunities in other sectors and I’m trying to build the confidence of people to be able to identify where opportunities lie in different sectors and where opportunities are available.
“That’s one of the challenges we’re facing in the economy at the moment.”
It is one of those areas where the focus is on the physical industry, and one of our jobs is to encourage the physical workers to move into the mental and social sector to build those relationships, because it’s very important to the economy that people with those skills are employed in the industry.
“This training is part of that effort.”
Mr O’Neill said that the Government would continue to look for new opportunities to increase the number of people working in the job market with disabilities, including by making it easier for people to apply for jobs.
“In terms of training and support, there is an increased awareness that there are opportunities for people who are physically or cognitively disabled to work in the sector.”
There are many organisations, like the Irish National Workforce Agency, which have been working for some time to promote an inclusive workplace, and they have recognised that the more people with a disability that work, the more opportunities they have to achieve a broader range of employment outcomes,” he said.”
So we are working to develop more training and training support for people in the disability workforce, and the skills and experiences of the people who work in that workforce.
The Government is also looking for more funding for the training and mentoring of young people with autism, with Mr O’Brien promising to continue to invest in this area in the future.””
This is also part of this broader strategy that will increase the supply of employment in our economy.”
The Government is also looking for more funding for the training and mentoring of young people with autism, with Mr O’Brien promising to continue to invest in this area in the future.
“A lot of the skills that we are looking to support in young people are skills that people have to build in order to work.
It’s also a way to build skills in other areas of life to support them in their careers.”
If you look at a young person with autism or people with developmental disabilities, it is also a skill that can be developed in other ways,” he added.
The Minister also promised that all those working in Government, and in particular those in the Public Service, would be trained to become better leaders, to make the public service more inclusive.”
These are things that will make our public services more inclusive and more effective.
They will also improve the ability of people of all backgrounds to get on in life,” he explained.”
For example, if a young woman in a senior position in a Government department comes across someone with a learning disability and they are able to give that person a
