Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet is proud to partner with IBM to make IBM SkillsBuild available to enable individuals or groups looking for new roles, or those already in employment who wish to upskill or cross-skill, to take advantage of a broad range of career opportunities in emerging digital technologies.

IBM SkillsBuild provides those looking to upskill or cross-skill with 1800+ free online, self-paced courses in technology and professional skills, as well as project-based learning, credentials* and coaching.  All this can take place within three to six months of enrolment, readying people for in-demand IT and non-IT roles across many industries. The value Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet brings to this partnership is our ability to assist learners by providing access to MyInnerGenius an assessment tool that looks at what you can do, not just what you have done.  It is designed to help you find careers in IT that fit your natural skills, abilities and personality. Regardless of your education or background, these assessments will help identify a role where you have the best chance to be successful now and in the future.
In addition, we can curate content from multiple providers on the SkillsBuild platform to make it easy for learners to access the topics that will be most beneficial for their learning development in a range of technology and professional discipline areas.


Earn digital badges from IBM and other professional organisations – at no cost. Add these badges to your professional networking profile to showcase your skills and boost your career prospects.
