Tús Nua hosted its first information event aimed to present those in the region being affected by layoffs and redundancies with the opportunities available to them and to show their support through education, training and entrepreneurship.
The event was held in Thomond Park and advice and guidance was available from a number of organisations including Limerick IT, University of Limerick, Mary Immaculate College, Tipperary Institute and IT Tralee, to Citizens Information, Paul Partnership, Enterprise Ireland, Limerick City and County Enterprise Boards, Local Employment Services, VEC, FÁS and DSFA.
The event gave practical advice and guidance to people affected by redundancy in the region, of supports available to them to assist them into further/continuing/higher education or to start a business. Job seekers could discuss these options with specialists on the spot.
