The Springboard+ Initiative allows us to offer courses for free, or at a reduced cost, to fill the skills shortages in Ireland. This initiative is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
We will be holding online open evenings this summer where you can learn more about the computing courses we offer at National College of Ireland under the Springboard+ Initiative.
The courses available through this programme are offered free of charge for people who are currently unemployed. For applicants in employment, there will be a fee of 10% of the normal course fee. Springboard+ is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020. Visit our Springboard+ page for further information on the scheme.
