Find a Skillnets training network in your company’s sector and/or region.

Important information:

  • Our training networks provide training courses for private sector businesses or commercial semi-state businesses only*
  • We fund training through our training networks – no funding is given directly to individual businesses
  • Member businesses pay subsidised training course fees for their employees – individual employees cannot pay for courses

*If you are a public sector organisation, charity or not-for-profit organisation, or a business based outside the Republic of Ireland, unfortunately you will not be able to get training with a Skillnets network.

Creating a training network

Skillnets wants to hear from groups of private sector enterprises that are interested in setting up a new training network in their sector/region.
