Corey studied computing 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.

For more information on the Springboard+ courses starting in January 2023, please download the Springboard+ brochure.
Who can apply to Springboard+
Everyone can apply for a Springboard+ or HCI course regardless of your employment status. The courses remain free of charge for people who are currently unemployed. For applicants in employment there will be a fee of 10% of the contribution to the normal course fee. Visit the Springboard+ website for more information on eligibility criteria.
Applications for Springboard+ courses starting in September 2023 will be opening soon.

How to Apply
Springboard+ and HCI course applications are processed on the Springboard+ website.
To get started, register your details on the website then click the Apply Now button on your chosen course page. Enter your details in all of the required fields and when complete, click the apply button. You will be able to login at any stage to check the status of your application.

If you are being redirected to the HEA home page rather than to the Springboard website, this may be due to a system restriction incorporated on this site to block users who are trying to access from outside the state. Springboard can only be accessed within Ireland.
Please note that company servers and VPN can also give the appearance that users are attempting to access the site from outside the country.
