What we do
it@cork skillnet is a learning network that supports and works with companies of all sizes in the Tech sector in the South West region, to address current and future skills needs through provision of subsidised training solutions.
How can your company benefit from being part of it@cork skillnet?
>Support: Flexible approach suited to your business needs; we work with you to source and part-fund training partners to provide relevant up-skilling where and when you need it.
>Member-led Collaboration: Our network is made up of companies within the Tech sector with similar training needs. Because our training is member-driven we are in a unique position to identify these shared training needs and hence shared training costs.
>Cost-effective subsidised training: Skillnet Ireland funding enables us to achieve significant efficiencies, which are passed onto our members in the form of substantially reduced training rates.
>Networking & Knowledge-Sharing: The network help promote the sharing of information, best practice and business contacts among member companies. Interacting with other member companies on training courses greatly increases your opportunity to learn about the latest developments and broaden your network.
We aim to support and work with the Tech sector in the South-West to ensure it has the skills it needs to thrive nationally and globally
Skills Connect is an initiative developed by Skillnet Ireland and designed in partnership
with enterprise to enhance cross-sector employability and support people who have lost
their jobs due to Covid-19. It offers a suite of bespoke upskilling and training solutions,
designed by enterprise, aimed at supporting re-entry into the workforce. This valuable
initiative offers individuals the opportunity to develop new skills or reskill, build
confidence and access practical on-the-job training.
At present it@Cork Skillnet has one Skills Connect programme running – CyberQuest. This is a fully subsidised programme in Cyber Skills & Security. For more information on this programme and how to apply please go to the CyberQuest website.
