Specialist Employment Programme (European Social Fund Project)
The Specialist Employment Programme is a project organised by Action on Hearing Loss as part of the European Social Fund. It is aimed at unemployed people aged 16 or over who are deaf and/or hard of hearing.
The aim of the Specialist Employment Programme is to enhance the employability of people who are deaf, have a hearing loss and/or tinnitus, through the provision of specialist support. This includes:
- individual assessment needs and personal development plans
- advice and guidance sessions
- accredited training and employability programmes to improve confidence
- CV writing
- interview skills
The Specialist Employment Programme works throughout Northern Ireland in partnership with local councils.
