These courses are designed and developed in close collaboration with industry partners and provide a dynamic pipeline of job-ready graduates, with up-to-the-minute skills, and valuable qualifications, for sectors of the Irish economy that are expanding and recruiting.

Springboard+ provides free higher education courses in areas of identified skills needs to unemployed people, those previously self-employed and those returning to work.

Courses will also be free for employed people on NFQ Level 6 courses.

For employed participants on courses NFQ level 7–9, 90 per cent of the course fee will be funded by the Government, with participants required to contribute just 10 per cent of the fee.

“Our offerings for 2019 are drawn from key areas of strength in CIT such as smart manufacturing, validation science, cloud computing and service design. We look forward to welcoming new Springboard students to CIT later this year and supporting upskilling for our workplaces of the future.”
