Arcadia Member Update – Mandate Training Supports

19th February 2021

Dear Member,

In light of the recent redundancies announced across the Arcadia Group, Mandate has arranged a number of essential skills courses for entering the job market, which are FREE to our Mandate Members. The aim of these courses are to ensure that as you enter the job market, you have the confidence and skills to support you in your re-employment. You can see attached here the list of dates and the content which will be covered on these courses. Please be advised that these courses are reserved on a first come first served basis. Should you wish to book your place please contact Amanda Blake at or you may phone Amanda Blake in Mandate Training Centre on 0874406564 and advise of the dates which best suit.

In addition to the above Mandate has also arranged in collaboration with Skills For Work/Education & Training Board (ETB) the opportunity to attend a CV Preparation & Interview Skills course/briefings to also prepare and support our members during this difficult time see link attached. If you are interested in availing of these supports, please contact Amanda Blake at or on 0874406564 to express your interest in same. Expressions of interest must be made prior to Friday 26th February 2021, so please make sure that if you are emailing Amanda that you also include your full name, email address, contact number and employment location for convenience, at which point please be informed that your contact details and location will be shared with the Education Training Board in your region, so the relevant regional ETB Coordinator can contact you regarding the scheduling of the course.

Yours fraternally
For Mandate Trade Union
