LEAP Project!Last updated:
Are you a woman over 18 who is unemployed or economically inactive looking to take the first steps towards employment or further education/learning? If your answer is ‘yes’, then LEAP is for you! As a LEAP learner, you will work one to one with the Project Mentor to create a bespoke pathway to reach your goals!
So, what is LEAP?
LEAP is a program funded the European Community Fund and the Education and Skills Funding Agency that encourages learners, who are unemployed or economically inactive, to take an active role in their own career development. Through social, creative and learning opportunities, with the aim that they will progress into employment or further education/learning, learners will be supported with one-to-one mentorship and guided learning to achieve their own personal goals.
As a learner, you will work one to one with the Project Mentor to discuss your goals and hopes for the program and beyond. You will create a bespoke pathway to reach these goals, by getting involved in a variety of different activities and sessions, at Kyra and beyond!
