Job Seeking and Career Development Skills

LTT - PencilWhat boxes do I have to tick?

EQUAL Ireland does not operate a strict Entry Requirements regime for this Programme. However a willingness to try out new ideas, to take a bit of a risk in terms of presenting yourself, albeit with a good deal of professional production staff, producers, sound, make up, script writers and camera people, would be really advantageous to making the best use of this innovative and ‘leading edge’ programme.

 

LTT - MoneyHow much will it cost?

The cost to you depends on your circumstances. If you are unemployed or employed in the private sector there may be funding available. Best advice is to come along to an EQUAL Ireland Information Session and we will try to sort it out there. Even if you do have to pay yourself we have a staggered payment system to take the immediate pain out of paying.  Don’t let money stop you coming to at least the Information Session
