Redeemer Family Resource Centre
EXTERN and Create Local Training Initiative
Create LTI is funded by Louth Meath Education and Training Board (LMETB) and sponsored by Redeemer Development Management Group (RDMG). The aim of the training programme is to provide flexible training opportunities in the community to raise competency levels of unemployed people, enhancing their skills and encouraging them to pursue additional educational opportunities and employment by using collaborative community resources and opportunities.
All trainees are supported in identifying their individual learning needs. Trainees are encouraged to develop to their maximum potential at their own pace in a supported learning environment of equality and inclusion.
This programme leads to a QQI Level 4 Major Award in Employment Skills for learners who meet the award requirements and a Training Allowance is paid to trainees throughout the course.

We operate in the Redeemer Family Resource Centre on Tuesday and Thursday nights between 7pm and 8pm. We also go for a run on Wednesday evening, meeting from 7pm to 8pm outside the O'Hanlon Park Boxing Club. As a group we also do 5k and 10k races once a month to help local charities along the way. We encourage our members to do the Park Run on Saturday mornings at the D.K.I.T. playing fields, running 5k at your own pace.
