A series of workshops was run by Clanmil Housing Association in partnership with WOMEN’STEC, an organization that trains women in non-traditional industries such as trades and ICT.
The programme is designed to give people – mainly women – who are struggling to find employment the opportunity to
build skills through accredited training which will help equip them for the workplace.
500 Tenants of Clanmil Housing Association recieved training. To participate on this programme tenants must be unemployed or working less than 16 hours per week.
Total budget: £850,000 (ESF + Belfast city council grant + private capital)
From that initiative, Clanmil managed to get funding with WOMEN’STEC through ESF 2014-2020, Belfast city council and private sector organizations (Gilbert Ash Construction Group and JMC Mechanical and Construction Ltd).
Timeframe: 2014 – 2020
