County Tipperary Skillnet is proud to be part of Skillnet Ireland, the national agency responsible for the promotion of workforce learning in Ireland. We are delighted to share the recent news that Skillnet Ireland is offering up to €2M worth of funding for new Network development. This funding will be made available to industry bodies and enterprise groups to develop new Skillnet Networks. The new enterprise-led learning networks will be launched in 2019 and will support Irish businesses in addressing their current and future skills needs. Application information can be found on the funding page https://www.skillnetireland.ie/funding
County Tipperary Chamber, the promoting organisation understands the value of the Skillnet model,
“to develop the skills and talent of the Tipperary workforce contributing to the overall growth of businesses in the region."
The Skillnet model is particularly appealing for SMEs as the cost of training is subsidised by Skillnet Ireland. In addition, the design, sourcing and delivery of training is all coordinated by County Tipperary Skillnet, enabling easy access to training but also moving much of the administrative burden away from the company.
The fund will close for applications at 5pm on Thursday, 8 November 2018.
Skillnet Ireland will hold information briefings on this Funding Call in September in Cork, Dublin and Galway. If your industry federation, industry body or other private sector enterprise group are interested in establishing a new Skillnet learning network, please contact Skillnet Ireland at 01 207 9630 or email@example.com or visit the funding page https://www.skillnetireland.ie/funding
