CBPES North West PES Seminar
The Cross Border Partnership for Employment Services Team had a great day on Thursday 8th November hosting our Annual North West Public Employment Services Seminar which took place in the picturesque town of Buncrana, Co.Donegal. The Inishowen Gateway Hotel was the venue.
Employment Supports and Front Counter staff from both the Department of Social Protection and Department for Communities were in attendance to exchange valuable work practices, learn how the Cross Border Partnership supports Cross Border Jobseekers, Employers & Workers and foster insightful discussions on cross border employment issues.
Thanks to Martin Casey, from Cross Border Solutions, who provided expert information and insights into Cross Border labour mobility. We discussed the opportunities cross border working can present, along with some real life scenarios relating to the complex situations that can arise when cross border working.
Thanks also to Aisling Cartmill, who is a member of the CBPES Steering Committee and the Cross Border Adviser based in the Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre. Aisling's presentation explained how BURC represents the Irish Congress of Trade Unions on the Cross Border Partnership and the supports they provide through Sector Specific English language courses funded through CBPES.
