Following a meeting in the South West College, Omagh and a visit to the Jobs and Benefits office, the committee made their way to Todds Leap in Ballygawley.
Earlier in the day, Todds Leap owner Ben O'Hanlon delivered a presentation to the committee and invited guests at their meeting in the college. Ben outlined how Todds Leap practically implement some of the department's measures, such as the Steps to Work which is a government programme designed to address individual employment and training needs. This initiative aids personal development, increases employability and provides ongoing support for those in the programme.
Todds Leap engage in the Steps to Work programme as it provides an ideal way to recruit staff across a diverse range of areas including mechanical work, joinery, sales and activity instruction. New recruits can complete a lengthy trial, experiencing a range of activities through which they gain experience and build their confidence. If all goes well, this can lead to a full time post with our company. Read more now on the Steps to Work programme on the Department's website
