Microsoft and FIT have come together to develop Youth2Work. A training and developmental programme targeted for 18 – 25 year olds, giving them information advice and access to ‘in-demand’ skills, work experience and interview and CV development support. Complementing existing government funded interventions, it aims to reach 10,000 young people over the next three years
FIT’s mission is to promote an inclusive Smart Economy by creating a fast track to marketable technical skills for those at risk of unemployment long term. It is the primary industry skills development initiative facilitating collaboration with government, education and training providers and disadvantaged communities to enable greater access to employment for marginalised job seekers.
Meeting the Recruitment Needs of Industry
FIT responds to the technology needs of Industry through providing training, support and career opportunities for unemployed people, so that they can
achieve their true potential and contribute to the Irish economy.
