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. This initiative was set up to address skills shortages in the workforce and so are funded by the government to improve Ireland's ability to fill job vacancies.
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.
Who can apply
For the first time everyone can apply for a Springboard+ course regardless of your employment status. The courses remain free of charge for people who are currently unemployed.
