St. Josephs Foundation Job Shadow Presentations Day
St. Joseph’s are holding a Job Shadow Presentation Morning in the T.E.S.S. Training Centre in Broad St Charleville on Friday the 24th of June at 11.00 am.
St. Joseph’s are members of the Irish Association of Supported Employment which is a Government Agency promoting Employment and Disability nationally. For the past 9 years they have participated in National Job Shadow Day, where an employer will give a person with a disability the opportunity to shadow them as they go about their daily work routine. Job Shadow Day took place on the 27th of April this year.
St. Joseph’s experience this year of Job Shadow was very positive and there was great interest from local employers.
Maurice Byrnes of Adult Services spent the day at a family butchers in Bruff. Carmel Hynes of Adult Services spent the day at the Broad Street Café, Charleville. Maeve Long of Adult Services worked at Rainbows Hair Salon, Charleville. Pamela Collins, also of Adult services helped out at Supervalu Charleville. Michael Lynch of the T.E.S.S Training Centre was stationed at Supermacs Charleville. John Curtain of T.E.S.S spent the day at Da Vinci Creative Charleville and Ronan Spratt, also of T.E.S.S helped out at Posh Paws, Charleville.
The local employers were delighted with the help and it was a great experience for all involved.
A representative from Charleville Chamber of Commerce will present Certs from the I.A.S.E to the employers and participants.
