    will all be aware of these ceremonies It is a landmark event in anyone s life and at the many ceremonies which have taken place to date the happiness excitement and sense of fulfilment reflected on the faces of those who received their certificates were a delight to behold Similarly I am very pleased to be here today to see so many equally excited people and happy faces on the occasion of the presentation of these Certificates of Achievement to participants in the EPIC Programme I would like to congratulate Business in the Community on the innovative nature of the project and on its continued success Bearing in mind the importance of participation in the labour market in the process of integration into Irish society this is a very significant day for you My Department has worked with Business in the Community for a number of years on a variety of training programmes and I think it is fair to say that the experience has been a positive one and that much has been achieved through the delivery of these programmes The Government has committed significant resources to training and up skilling programmes to help re integrate people into the labour market EPIC is a part of this system It is important in these difficult times that everyone is facilitated as far as possible to access employment to their own benefit and that of society as a whole As you will know EPIC is open to EU immigrants and non EU immigrants with Immigration Stamp 4 that is those persons who are permitted to work without the need for a work permit In a sense these are groups with somewhat different attributes The EU national has freedom of movement throughout Europe whether or not he or she intends to make their home in Ireland The holder of Stamp 4 permission on the other hand does not have this freedom of movement unless and until they become Irish citizens That person is also very likely to be someone who will reside in Ireland in the long term His or her integration into Irish society in every way possible is therefore crucial This is one very significant reason why the work done in this Programme is very important One of the characteristics of EPIC that I particularly like is its broad scope It seems to answer pretty much all the needs of the target group in regard to helping them participate in the economic life of the community There are obvious things like English language for employment training and IT and interview skills but to that are added life and work skills training in social media information on social welfare housing childcare and other public services and so on Advice on entrepreneurship is also covered thus tapping in to a talent that many of our immigrants have but which needs to be facilitated if is to flourish in what is still a challenging environment for a newcomer And still I am still
