Training & Education

In general courses and workshops are mainly taking place in the morning as childcare is still difficult to organise. There are no courses during school holidays. The programme is conducted in different parts of the DLR county. In cooperation with different Community and Family Resource Centres, Southside Partnership Women's Programme aims to accommodate participants living in different areas. To find out more about the current programme please look at the brochure section.

RePower is a free part-time programme for women who wish to develop new skills and want to increase their confidence!

The REPOWER programme is designed to support you on a path to personal growth, education and employment.

In September and February each year we start with our 15 weeks programme in different areas of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County. All courses take place in the morning and do not meet when schools break.

Modules that are on offer:


QQI Level 4 Employability Skills module (15 weeks)

Personal Development (15 weeks)

Basic Computer Skills (15 weeks)

Advanced Computer Skills (10 weeks)

Job Seeking Skills Workshop (7 mornings)

You can enroll for all the above modules or choose modules that are of interest to you. For details on specific dates, times and places for the next courses being offered go here. For details on the next Job Seeking Skills Workshop go here.


In addition we offer one-to-one coaching and counselling support on request to women who engage in the programme. 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.

For full details on the RePower programme and the courses offered, you can download our brochure.

The REPOWER programme is open to all women who are not currently employed, not in receipt of Job Seeker payments and not on a Stamp 3 visa.
If you are in receipt of Job Seeker payment support will be available to you through the Local Employment Service (phone 1 800 200501).
