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.
Springboard+ Courses Available at NCI
As some of the courses are based online, applicants do not need to be based in Dublin to attend classes.
This open evening will take place on Tuesday 3rd December at our IFSC campus and will give you a chance to speak directly to a lecturer one-on-one and ask any questions you have about our Springboard+ courses starting in January 2020 which are listed above.
We will also be hosting two online open evenings focusing on the data analytics and software development computing courses offered under the Springboard+ Initiative. An experienced lecturer will conduct a sample online class and a member of the Springboard+ team at NCI and our Education & Training Advisor will be available to answer questions. Details of the online open evenings are below:
- Springboard+ Online Open Evening - Data Analytics: Wednesday 11th December 6pm - 8pm (register here)
- Springboard+ Online Open Evening - Software Development: Tuesday 14th January 6pm - 8pm (register here)
Once you register for an online open evening on our website, an email with a link to view the online class will be sent to you before the event takes place.
