Building Futures Training Initiative
Building Futures class of 2013 What is Building Futures?
The INOU Initiative ‘Building Futures’ is an exciting and innovative programme – currently in its fifth year - that includes delivering an Education Training Board (ETB) training course and associated workplace internships which draws on participants own life experiences to enable them to become peer educators, trainers and mentors. The courses is for those experiencing or have experienced long-term unemployment and/or precarious work histories.
Building Futures originated as part of the Mount Street Trust Employment Initiative funded by the Mount Street Trust. Our other partners in that Initiative were the Ballymun Job Centre and OPEN. The Initiative was managed by WRC Social and Economic Consultants Ltd.
The primary aims of Building Futures is to:
- Support participants to become effective communicators, trainers, peer supports, mentors, facilitators and community workers.
- Develop a participant’s expertise to use his/her own life experience effectively for training.
- Develop the capacities of local communities experiencing disadvantage through training unemployed people to become Trainers and Community Workers.
