Apply for an equipment grant worth €150 by sharing your experience and tell us how Skills Summary brings your work practice to life.
NYCI is delighted to be able to offer equipment grants to successful applicants who:
- are using Skills Summary within their work practice with young people and
- would benefit from additional equipment in relation to the project or programme within which they are using Skills Summary.
To apply please outline how you are using Skills Summary in practice through the submission form below by the 18th November 2020.
If your application for this support is successful (depending on the criteria outlined below) you will receive a grant worth €150 that can be used towards the equipment and materials needed for the project within which you are using Skills Summary with young people. Five equipment grants are available. Grants must be claimed by the 4th December 2020.
Best practice examples will be presented on our website to both inspire organisation’s currently using Skills Summary with new practical ideas as well as those that are interested in using the tool in the future.
Equipment grants will be allocated depending on:
- Outcomes achieved through the usage of Skills Summary
- Originality and scale of way in which you are using Skills Summary
- Diversity of best practice examples (in terms of format, activities, tasks etc.)
- The young people who benefit (we are particularly keen for best practice examples involving young people who have limited access to inspiring out-of-school learning opportunities)
- Geographical spread and diversity of organisations
We will let you know by the 20th November if your application has been successful. The deadline for claiming grants is the 4th December 2020.
This support is being made available by NYCI’s Skills Summary project. Skills Summary is a partnership project between the National Youth Council of Ireland, SpunOut.ie, and Accenture. It is funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and recognised as a measurement tool in the Youth Employability Initiative.
