The Migrant Access Programme (MAP) is a free nationwide service established by New Communities
Partnership (NCP) in 2017. Our aim is to support migrants to overcome cultural and personal barriers
and empower them with a “Toolkit” to outline their career future in order to access employment
opportunities as residents in Ireland. MAP uses two models in its work; The Employment training
and Public Information sessions both of which are delivered by multi-lingual Facilitators. This enables
MAP to be inclusive of participants whose first language is not English and based on individual needs

MAP employment training is a for Four (4) weeks; Two (2) days per week focused group and
personalised one-to-one support. Topics covered include; Getting Work Ready, English and Essential
IT skills for job searching; creating a successful CV and cover letter template, Presentation and
Effective communication skills, Interview skills / Mock interview practice and self-employment.

Our employment trainings which are delivered nationwide, includes course materials and six
months’ follow-up support for MAP participants.

MAP interactive Public information sessions are half-day information and awareness raising
sessions also delivered nationwide on topics such as; Employment rights and entitlements, Revenue,
Qualification recognition and training and volunteer experience, Employment supports and services
