South & East Cork Area Development (SECAD) hosted its fourth ‘Youghal Opportunities’ morning this week at Cumann na Daoine (19th Sept). The showcase event was another huge success in terms of the numbers it attracted, as well as the invaluable contributions of the most recent crop of ‘Time to Change’ graduates.
The morning provided an insight into SECAD’s flagship pathway programme, ‘Time to Change’ with recent participants presenting their own learning from the experience. Guest speaker, Dr Michael Ryan from the Centre for Education and Developing Human Potential at LIT-Tipperary offered various nuggets of wisdom and inspirational stories of those who battle against the odds, demonstrating huge resilience in the face of adversity. Catherine-Ann, trainer with the Time to Change programme, demystified the programme for those in the audience considering the training option. The morning concluded with an amicable exchange between audience and support services which had set up information stands from early morning. The morning proved a successful recruitment platform for the upcoming Youghal schedules commencing on 3rd and 4th October.
