The National Learning Network Navan are now recruiting for the Employer Based Training  Programme

What is Employer Based Training?

EBT is a vocational and personal development training programme based in Navan in Co. Meath. The programme was developed to meet the needs of people who may need extra support in transitioning between being at home, out of work or not fitting in to the traditional school system to progressing to further education, part time or full time employment.

It is designed to help you get a job. This work based training course offers you a work placement in a job that interests you ,so you get real-life training, skills and experience in a job that you want .You will spend up to three days a week learning in the classroom and two to three days a week in on the job training .

Who is Employer Based Training for?

People who may benefit from the EBT programme would be those who may have experienced a setback due to an accident or an illness and who may need to re-evaluate their health or what direction they might be going in. Those that are ready to get back out into the work force but may benefit from a job placement / work experience to help in that transition.

It is wonderful to see students progress and particularly in their own way as progression is different for each individual. In the last number of years we have seen an increase in students securing work and moving on to further education.
