Springboard & ICT Skills Initiatives give an opportunity to job seekers, be they those who have lost a job or who were previously self-employed, to take part-time and full-time, work-focused courses at third level, free of charge, while maintaining their benefits.
There are 213 places on 12 different courses available in CIT under this Springboard/ICT Skills Initiative. The courses on offer in CIT range from Cloud Technologies to Environmental and Energy Engineering. Courses are on a part-time & full-time basis. They are designed to help people who have lost their jobs, or were previously self-employed, and who need to up-skill or re-skill to gain sustainable employment again.
