Following recent announcements of company closures and layoffs throughout the Mid-West, a number of agencies and educational institutions have come together in the region to form a new initiative with the aim of getting workers back into the active labour market as quickly as possible.
The name of the group is TUSNUA. A web site, www.tusnua.ie, has been set up which guides people through the initial orientation process into new opportunities. These may lie in alternative employment, in pursuing further education and training, in setting up a business or in a combination of some of these options.
TUS NUA is a planned and co-ordinated response to the provision of employment advice, new enterprise support, retraining and further education to meet the needs of persons who are redundant as a result of closures in the Mid West region.
The web site provides information and direct access to designated contact people within the organisations. Details on events, including information sessions and training, employment and recruitment events hosted in the region are provided on the site
