Extern offers women opportunity to explore new training opportunities

Extern, the leading social justice charity, is holding an Open Morning in Belfast on Tuesday, 6 June, to encourage women to explore the many training and volunteering opportunities available to them.

Organised exclusively for women, Extern’s tutors will be on hand at the event to offer guidance on a range of new training opportunities being offered by the organisation and its partners.

New courses on offer include those in the trades, with plumbing, plastering, joinery and electrical installation all available, while other modules include Setting & Achieving Personal Goals, Interpersonal Skills for the Individual and Time Management Skills.

Organisers would particularly encourage any woman who has been out of the workplace for an extended period of time, who may be new to Northern Ireland, who may be a school leaver, or who is thinking of a change of direction, to attend.

Also joining Extern at the event, which is being held in association with WOMEN’STEC, will be the Ulster Wildlife Trust, Barnardos, and Cancer Focus. Along with Extern, all have exciting volunteering opportunities available.

Extern has arranged for limited crèche places to be available during the event, and free transport from Belfast City Centre is available to participants who register for the event in advance.

The project supports women to reach a positive destination, including employment, modern apprenticeships, and further and higher education.

The Extern Open Morning is taking place on Tuesday, 6 June between 10:30 am and 12 pm, at the Women’s Tec premises, 29 Chichester Avenue, Belfast. For further information on the event, or to book a place, please call or text Carol on 0748 451 5353.

The event is being run in association with WOMENS’STEC and is part-funded by the Department for the Economy and European Union Social Fund.
