Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys, T.D. and Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris, T.D. have today announced a range of activation measures aimed at helping people get back to work or education quickly.

The combined value of both Ministers’ measures amounts to over €200 million. This is a significant level of investment that will provide over 80,000 additional places for those who find themselves unemployed.

As part of the two packages of support an additional 35,500 in the higher and further education sector and 45,500 new employment support places are being created. These measures supplement both Departments’ existing range of programmes and will provide a comprehensive suite of supports available to the unemployed.

The measures also provide enhanced incentives to employers to recruit more apprentices and the young unemployed.
