What is In-Vest 2

IN-VEST 2 is a J.P. Morgan-supported accredited programme for people interested in exploring new apprenticeships, further education programmes and employment opportunities in the IT and services sectors while developing IT skills and soft skills that are transferrable to any career.  The course will be delivered in a creative, project-based format with students engaging in group work and developing individual portfolios. Career guidance will be integrated throughout the course with learners linking in regularly with the IN-VEST 2 team who will provide support and assistance with developing goals identified throughout the training.

Who is involved in IN-VEST 2?

The Ballymun Job Centre coordinate the course including work experience, site visits and career guidance, and the City of Dublin Education and Training Board are delivering the training and providing the qualifications. 



The BJC along with its partners J.P. Morgan and the CDETB held a graduation ceremony for participants of In-VEST 1 and 2. It was great to meet some of the participants in person, and to congratulate them on their achievements.
