Southern Regional College, as part of its work with the Department for Social Development is delivering Training and Employment Opportunities Programmes (TOPs) in the Newry Neighbourhood Renewal Areas.

Lesley Hamilton, SRC Community Development Officer, Jerome Burns, DSD, Kieran Lennon, David Vint, Asst Director for Community and School Partnerships

DSD funding supports economic training programmes which are targeted at those harder to reach adults and youth who for many reasons have become disengaged or have faced unemployment due to the economic recession. The programmes delivered by SRC have been successful with both adults and young people achieving qualifications in door security, horticulture, car maintenance and driving.

A number of the programme participants are now in employment. Kieran Lennon from Orior Road is currently employed with Group 4 Security and Michelle McKibbin from Vilot Hill Avenue is employed with local Security Company Protec. Kieran commented on how delighted he was to be in full-time employment and the amount of opportunities that the Door supervision license has opened for him.

Kieran and Michelle received their certificates from Mr Jerome Burns, Deputy Director DSD. Mr Burns thanked the neighbourhood renewal partnership Boards and SRC for their level of engagement in NR programmes and wished Kieran and Michelle the very best in the future. Both Kieran and Michelle are progressing to another programme involving CCTV training.

If you are interested in this or any other programme please contact Lesley Hamilton from Southern Regional College on 028 3025 9717 or e-mail Lesley on hamiltonl@src.ac.uk
