If you’re a jobseeker or know anyone who is, you may be interested in the Springboard courses beginning this September at Kilkenny’s third level campus run by NUI Maynooth. The courses are aimed at re-skilling people in areas of current and future skills needs in the workforce, based on skills shortages identified in a recent study by Forfás.
Kilkenny Campus will offer two Springboard courses in September, each running for one year, with no fees for eligible jobseekers. The NUI Certificate in Renewable Energy Technologies is open to all, and the NUI Certificate in Software Development is open to graduates in any subject. Jobseekers who have previously been employed or self-employed are eligible to apply and there is no wait period. Applications are now being accepted online at www.springboardcourses.ie, where you can also find further details of course content. Kilkenny Campus, a campus of NUI Maynooth, is based at St Kieran’s College.
