The Swilly Group was one of the largest and most successful providers of Momentum training programmes. The Coach Driver with Guiding Momentum programme was shortlisted for the award of “Best Back to Work Initiative” in the Irish Institute of Training and Development (IITD) National Training Awards in 2016.
Momentum is a labour market activation programme managed by SOLAS and delivered primarily by private training providers. This Government funded activation programme was designed specifically to support the Long Term Unemployed (LTU). The Swilly Group was one of the largest providers of Momentum programmes in Ireland being awarded over 10% of the training places in Momentum II.
Under Momentum the Swilly Group has developed a number of multi-employability support programmes that use a unique and novel approach to labour market activation. A strong employer engagement and focus in all phases of the programmes allowed Swilly Group to deliver positive outcomes well above national and international standards. Our programmes also offer opportunities in employment creation, tourism development and foster an environment of entrepreneurship. The unique and novel approach used combines employability support, customised and/or bespoke vocational training and supervised work placement/community projects.
Swilly Group delivered Momentum programmes to almost 500 candidates in Donegal, Sligo, Mayo, Galway, Limerick, Kilkenny, Dublin, Louth and Monaghan. Swilly Group has secured almost 400 job placements with over 200 employers.
