first_imgA WELL-KNOWN Donegal company is supporting the call for funding to be restored to a programme which helps get unemployed people back into work.Hugh & Grace Ann Downey of Sharp Design are currently work-placing a group of 15 unemployed highly qualified design, multi media & marketing graduates who for most of them have spent the last 1-2 years trying to enter the work place.Said Grace Ann Downey: “The idea came about to approach ‘Begin Again’ after years of frustration on our behalf interviewing designers & web designers. “At interview stage we can immediately identify if they are work ready & unfortunately we have been very unfortunate in getting quality and creative work ready designers.“We identified that there was still a huge gap between graduating from university or college and entering the workplace.“We designed a smart working module that we thought would bridge this gap and we approached ICBE Begin Again, a labour market activation programme funded through the Department of Education & Skills.“Over the past six months the programme has registered over a thousand job-seekers and potential employers. A careful matching process has enabled over 300 work-placements to be established. “Together with intensive and relevant training & mentoring, this has facilitated the return to employment of a large proportion of participants. Of 77% of people who have completed the training and directed work placement to date, 60% have so far been returned to work, commenced self-employment or commenced a career change course of study.”A number of variations of the programme are taking place in the North West involving some 90 participants. But as we revealed on Tuesday, funding has been cut. Director John Buckley (pictured) said he was ‘gutted’.This includes general groups as well as specialised cohorts (GAA Youth Coaches, Forestry Trainees and a Creative Design, Web, Multi Media & E-Marketing Group of Internships).Hugh added: “The programme consists of 12 weeks work placement in a business environment. Their social welfare was not affected during these weeks. They attended positivity & self confidence building training days. They were coached on interview skills, portfolio presentation, communication & commercial sales training on being employed or being self employed.“At the end of our particular programme they received accredited certification in leadership (Fetac Level 5) a European Accredited Certification in Leadership, a complete new CV with work experience and last but not least the confidence to get up & go!” BEGIN AGAIN FUNDING OUTRAGE: DONEGAL COMPANY SAYS SCHEME IS ‘BEST EVER’ was last modified: February 17th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img Anderson has been an offensive stalwart for years now, a central part to their attack, their quiet 100-RBI man. But for all those many moments when he was so brilliant, there were always those who would call into question his hustle, his desire, his effort. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 In the division series opener against the Yankees, a shallow-playing Anderson saw a Robinson Cano drive sail over his head for a three-run double that provided all the runs New York would need. At proper depth, and most likely with a solid jump, many felt it was a ball that should have been caught. He left after the game without speaking to the media. Now it is Friday in New York in Game 3, left-hander Randy Johnson on the mound, two outs, two on and the left-handed Anderson at the plate. An Anderson who was 3-for-18 lifetime against Johnson. Anderson just jumped on a 1-1 pitch and drilled it out to right for the three-run homer in the first inning and a 3-0 Angels lead. Two innings later, he tripled off Johnson. Then there was a run-scoring single in the seventh. “I just took advantage of some pitches that were left out over the plate,” Anderson said. The former Kennedy High of Granada Hills standout, who had four hits and five RBI in the 11-7 win, said this in a postgame press conference that he clearly would rather have missed. Yesterday’s goat, today’s hero; it’s a familiar baseball story. But just as familiar is Anderson’s dislike for the media. When asked if he’d seen anything in the way Johnson was pitching to others that tipped him on how to attack the left-hander Friday, Anderson all but dressed down the media member. “You’ve got to be a little more specific on what you’re asking,” he said. “You’re kind of vague.” The question was repeated, and Anderson said: “We faced him a couple of times this year and we have a good idea what he’s doing up there.” Some guys almost can’t enjoy success. Anderson batted third in the two games at Anaheim, but was moved back to fifth against Johnson. Anderson shrugged at the change. “I don’t feel pressure playing baseball,” he said. “I really don’t pay attention to where I hit in the lineup. “Obviously I want to be in the middle of the order because that’s where I’ve been most of my career. But that’s the manager’s decision.” The Angels’ all-time leader in hits and RBI battled a bad back throughout much of the second half, but still finished with 17 home runs and 96 RBI. There have been a lot of big hits in his 11-year career, yet somehow always more questions. A few he mostly answers with his bat. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
