First Steps Women’s Centre
has recently been recognised as an Investors In People organisation (IiP)

Investors in People (IiP) are a flexible and easy to use set of standards which help organisations transform their business performance. Organisations apply to be assessed against ten key best practice indicators which form part of the Investors in People standard. If the external assessors can find sufficient evidence of policy and practices in line with each indicator, the organisation is awarded 'recognition' of its Investors in People status.

For First Steps Women’s Centre Investors In People is testament to the valuable work and high levels of professionalism and customer commitment that are key to every aspect of its business. Funded by DEL and DSD First Steps Women’s Centre has had an extremely successful year providing training for over 250 women. A review of all IT and ancillary courses at First Steps Women's Centre, Dungannon and Fivemiletown has brought about a 100% IT Pass Rate. Average attendance is 83.4%. This is a fantastic achievement and FSWC is eager to move forward to September to start more programmes and courses.

Mr. Michael McGoldrick, Centre Manager, said “Anyone can have a ‘blue skies’ vision but we needed the framework to get us there. Investors In People has given us the tools to improve our services and we are now able to provide a much larger number of courses in September.”

Sir Reg Empey, MLA will be formally presenting the Centre with the Investors In People plague and certificate at a prestigious ceremony at Hillsborough Castle in the Autumn.

First Steps Women's Centre also provides a whole series of courses designed to improve a woman's confidence and self belief. One course The Moving On - Employment Skills Training Autumn 2009 is one such course. First Steps has also recently launched their course timetable commencing in September 2009..
