Government launches Springboard+ 2019

Government launches Springboard+ 2019

The Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh and the Minister of State for Training, Skills Innovation, Research and Development John Halligan today launched a new suite of courses under Springboard+ 2019. This brings the number of courses to 285 and the number of places available from this academic year to over 9,000.

Government has identified four areas of critical importance: digital skills, soft skills, management and leadership and the workplace of the future. All courses address at least one of these areas in detail, with many including all four of the critical areas.

Many courses focus on future-proofing the skills of people already in employment, particularly in roles that may be impacted by digitalisation. This strategy is aligned with the priorities set by the National Skills Council and Future Jobs Ireland 2019.

Candidates who wish to participate in Springboard+ 2019 will find full details on the approved courses on the dedicated information and applications website
