Speedpak Group, Social Innovation Fund Ireland, Education Fund Winner, 2017


Speedpak is a social enterprise that trades
commercially to provide real work experience and accredited training to people who are
long-term unemployed. Building on our Enhanced Skills Training Model
we will be working in collaboration to develop a traineeship in manufacturing and logistics. The traineeship will give people real work
skills, industry-specific skills and career guidance skills and that combination is transformative
for people building their self-esteem and capacity to get and to retain a job. Before I started I wasn’t doing anything. I wasn’t working for a good while like so
I was just like in a bit of a rut like. Am, I had no confidence or anything. When I came here like it got me up every morning. It got me out of the house. You know. I feel like I’m able to get up and go out
and look for a job like myself and be able to walk in with confidence and do the interviewing
now. You know. Before I couldn’t do that.
