Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet primarily focuses on supporting those in employment within the ICT sector.  Whilst our key focus is on the needs of member companies, we also offer a small number of fully-funded programmes for jobseekers, subject to eligibility criteria and places being available on the programme(s).

Several other Skillnet Networks participate in the Skillnet Ireland Emplyoment Activation Programme.  This initiative is designed exclusively for unemployed people and includes free training in skills in demand by companies combined with direct access to employers through meaningful work placements.  For information on other Skillnet Networks offering free training programmes for those seeking employment, see the Skillnet Ireland website.

Important Notes

  1. We operate a “first come, first served” basis for all jobseeker places however preference will be given to candidates who have not already taken part in training with us throughout the current year. This is in the interest of fairness to all.
  2. The decision on whether or not you retain any social welfare benefit you may currently be in receipt of lies with your local social welfare office.
  3. A selection process takes place ahead of some of our training programmes.
  4. Being eligible and applying for a place on a programme is not a guarantee of being offered a place.
