Deirdre studied data analytics through Springboard at NCI.
At National College of Ireland we have the opportunity to offer a number of free courses through the Springboard+ initiative and Human Capital Initiative (HCI). These initiatives address skills shortages in the workforce and so are funded by the government to improve Ireland's ability to fill job vacancies.
