We are delighted to announce that we are now recruiting for year 8 of our Building Futures Local Training Initiative (LTI) which will be based in Dublin 1.

The Building Futures programme is funded through the City of Dublin Education and Training Board (CDETB) and the European Social Fund. The programme is a QQI accredited programme with participants working towards a major award in Community Development with the addition of a QQI level 6 minor award in Training, Delivery and Evaluation.

The programme aims to provide learners with the knowledge, skill and competence to work effectively in a range of community development work settings. This programme also helps develop skills for working in other settings such as training & education and / or progression into further or higher education. Building Futures includes workplace internships which will draw on participant’s life experiences to enable them to become community workers, peer educators, trainers and mentors.

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.
