IRF’s training project – Refugee Women into Enterprise and Employment – plans to explore how refugee women can overcome barriers to employment and enterprise and gain enterprise and employability skills that are relevant to their real needs. The training specifically aims to help women over the age of 24 to build upon enterprise skills and encourage self-employment as an option. The project will be delivered in two rounds, and each round will involve 15 women. It will consist of:
7 – three-hour long workshops delivered fortnightly by a highly qualified and experienced instructor. The training will concentrate on developing a range of skills including communication and organisational skills, promote positive self-perceptions of participants, and confidence within their abilities. Practical advice on how to succeed will be the hallmark of each session.
1-2-1 tutoring support. To embed the learning we will also provide tutor support in the form of one-to-one, which amounts to 6 hours per participant. 1-2-1 support exists to help participants complete the modules and work book, as well as assess and address any specific needs of the individual.
IRF and the facilitators will organise a graduation ceremony to recognise participant’s achievements.
The Units will include the following: What is enterprise · Routes to employment · Enterprising People · The right Mindset · Your Mindset · All about skills · Your skills · Thinking creatively · Getting ideas · Down to Business · What’s the plan · SMART thinking · Talking teamwork · Making a team work ·Team strengths · Problem solving · What’s in your way · Your Business Plan · Your Career Plan
