The Positive Learning project is supported through €1.8m of funding from the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (www.seupb.eu).

Positive Learning provides vocational training to people who find themselves on the margins of society, including people who are disadvantaged, homeless, have an offending history, are long-term unemployed, or who are refugees. It aims to improve good relations and enable participants to reintegrate into society.

Adults from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds are being brought together in the programme with a view to improving good relations.

Areas explored include community, prejudices, identity, and diversity. Skills development is also on offer in order to support participants as they aim to reintegrate into their community, including joinery, ICT, horticulture, and catering, during a 26-week programme.

Project partners include:

  • Probation Board for Northern Ireland
  • Northern Ireland Prison Service
  • TIDES Training and Consultancy
  • The Probation Service Ireland

Match-funding for the project has been provided by the Executive Office in Northern Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland.
