This week, the For Purpose graduates attended their first Learning Seminar of the year, with a presentation from Teach Tearmainn’s Manager, Lorraine Rowan.
The Learning Seminar benefited the graduates as they gained insight into the organisational strategy, mission and purpose of Teach Tearmainn. Furthermore, they participated in a Q&A with Lorraine. Connecting an industry professional with our For Purpose graduates deepened their understanding of non-profit organisations.
Teach Tearmainn provides free and confidential support services, information and emergency accommodation to women and children who are suffering from domestic violence and abuse in the Kildare and West Wicklow area. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an upsurge in domestic violence in Ireland. Teach Tearmainn offers a 24/7 helpline, provides women and children with support groups, and much more.
Learning Seminars are one of the unique aspects of the For Purpose Graduate Programme, where we assist in the development of our graduates professional careers.
