Are you passionate about workers’ rights?
Do you believe you can make a difference?
Would you like to know more about employment rights and immigration law in Ireland?
Would you like to empower your own community to know more?
If so, this may be the opportunity for you!
MRCI is providing free training for up to 10 people from a migrant background as a part of our unique Migrants Against Exploitation (MAX) train-the-trainers project - empowering migrant communities to know more about workers' rights and prevent exploitation in their communities.
To participate in MAX training you don’t need a specialist qualification but spaces are limited and priority will be given to people:
- who clearly have strong connections with their community
- can upskill and bring this knowledge back into their community
- can commit fully to the training (4 weekend workshops - 1 per month starting in May)
What will MAX training involve?
Over a series of workshops you will improve your knowledge and skills in immigration law and employment rights in Ireland and develop your facilitation and training skills. Key content includes:
- An overview of employment and immigration law in Ireland
- Understanding what exploitation and trafficking for labour exploitation looks like – how to spot the signs and knowing what to do about it
- Increase your confidence and build up your skills to run a ‘know your rights’ workshop – deliver a mini MAX session in your own community!
How will MAX benefit you?
- you will have a better understanding of Irish employment law, workers' rights and the immigration system in Ireland
- you will understand what trafficking for labour exploitation is
- you will meet other people and hear their stories and make an important contribution to improve workers' conditions,
- you will develop the skills to deliver an empowering training session
