The Ireland Funds Flagship Grant Awarded to the TCPID
Flagship Grant support from The Ireland Funds will allow the TCPID to develop a Graduate Internship Programme, extending on the two-year Certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice to include a third year of employment internship experiences. This will ultimately enable people with intellectual disabilities to compete for employment on a more equal level to their non-disabled peers and, as a result, to lead more independent lives.
