*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.
Look at our funding page for more information on how to apply.
Do you know that our training networks provide free training courses for unemployed people?*
If you know someone who would be interested in learning more, have a look at the unemployed section for more information.
If you have any feedback on Skillnets or any of services we/our networks provide please let us know by filling out our feedback form.
