THE Progressive Pathways Fair returns again this year and it’s a great opportunity for people aged 16 or over, with health issues, illness, disability or other support needs, to find out more about their employment options.

The Fair — which takes place at The Rose Hotel on this Friday, from 11am to 4.30pm — will have everything to inform those looking to progress to employment and further education and training, of all the options available to them.

This free event is organised by Employability Kerry and the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.
