Mentoring Supports

Laois Partnership Company offers an ongoing range of mentoring supports to unemployed people to help them progress into employment, enterprise or further education. Our Unemployed Mentoring Programme, which is free-of-charge, offers a confidential, one to one personalised service, providing help and advice to individuals wishing to return to work.

A specific mentoring programme is provided to participants aged between 18 and 24, under the Youth Employment Initiative and aims to identify training needs, employment possibilities and new skills opportunities for these young people.
