If you are currently unemployed and fit the Skillnets definition of a job seeker (see http://www.skillnets.ie/job-seekers/eligibility-criteria) you may be eligible to attend training that is offered through County Tipperary Skillnet.
“Having recently completed my undergraduate degree in Environmental Management, I needed something to make me stand out from the crowd, something that would give me the edge over the competition. This is where County Tipperary Skillnet helped me by providing the opportunity to study for a Higher Diploma in Business in Operational Excellence at Waterford Institute of Technology. The programme is designed to provide a better understanding of Operational Excellence, Continuous Improvement, Lean Transformation and Project Management. I found the experience challenging yet achievable through an active learning process which included individual and group assignments, discussion, debate and the use of practical applications. This course has provided me with the theoretical background and the practical skills required to develop my potential to lead, supervise or manage change within a wide variety of industries. I can highly recommend this course to anyone who has a desire to be at the leading edge of business or to anyone who wants to know how to apply the Lean and Continuous Improvement tools within their own organization.”
