Young Workers Complete Tesco-Positive2Work Skillnet Programme

46 young unemployed people from Dublin have this week collected graduation certificates for their completion of a programme launched by Positive2Work Skillnet, in partnership with Tesco Ireland and the Department of Social Protection. In attendance was Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton, T.D, who praised the commitment of the young graduates.

The 6 week FETAC certified programme based in Tallaght, Donabate and Ballymun provides young jobseekers aged 18-25 with the opportunity to gain Level 4 modules in Retail Skills along with a work placement at Tesco.

Commenting on the programme, Ciaran Foley, Retail Support Director, Tesco Ireland, said, “I applaud the participants of the Tesco-Positive2Work Skillnet Programme on their achievement today. We know youth unemployment is a major challenge, and this programme allows us at Tesco to make a positive difference by using our resources facilities and capabilities to help young people become work-ready.”

The graduation this week marks 180 learners who have completed the latest phase of the Tesco-Positive2Work Skillnet programme, now in its second year.
