INOU E-Bulletin Issue 36 January 2019


Welcome to the 36th edition of the INOU’s E-bulletin

In this edition we look at the INOU’s education and training programme for people who are long-term unemployed: Building Futures; and a transnational project called SkillsMatch in which the INOU will play an active part. Our focus on an INOU affiliated organisation is on Doras Buí. A piece from Crosscare focuses on their report ‘Do You Speak English?’ There is a piece on the ‘gig economy’; a report on the Future Jobs Summit; and an update on the INOU’s JobsWatch. On the policy front we highlight SILC 2017; Educational Attainment Report 2018; and recent Government announcements including Community Employment and Springboard+ 2019. There is also an article looking at unemployment over a twenty year period. And finally we have articles from Samaritans Ireland seeking to recruit volunteers; and from Friends of the Earth on their 12-step programme to quit fossil fuels.
