Ballyhoura Development co-ordinates and delivers a Retail Skills Local Training Initiative (LTI) for unemployed people in the area, in partnership with Cork Education & Training Board .

The LTI programme is designed to provide opportunities for learners who are, or who have been, unable to participate in other mainstream training interventions for personal, social or geographic reasons.  The LTI provides vocational training opportunities, learning supports and project-based learning to assist participants to achieve a QQI Level 4 qualification in Retail Skills, and to develop their capacity to progress to further training, education and work.

The LTI runs over 40 weeks from October to June, and is targeted primarily at people under 35 years of age, with no formal qualifications or incomplete secondary level qualifications.  Learners on the course graduate with a QQI Level 4 qualification in Retail Skills.

For further information or if you would like to enquire about the next course, please contact Annette Hayes at [email protected]
