New training project to help communities help themselves

A new training project is being launched in a number of counties, including Sligo, Leitrim, Donegal and Cavan to help local communities take advantage of opportunities in their areas.

Innovating Communities is a two-year training programme.

The Donegal project will be launched this Thursday, the Sligo project on Friday, and Leitrim’s on March 12th.

All will be online launches.

The project will deliver training modules that will help communities tap into emerging opportunities.

A total of 102 training modules will be delivered across  six counties over a two-year period and will result in 900 participants being trained.

John Feerick, CEO of County Sligo Leader Partnership, has been telling Ocean FM News more about the initiative.
