This support is available to help you review and evaluate your own personal situation, to help you identify and explore your own career path more specifically and to provide added help in completing any modules successfully.

The REPOWER programme is open to all women who are not in receipt of Job Seeker payments.
If you are in receipt of Job Seeker payment support will be available to you through the Local Employment Service (phone 1 800 200501).
