Springboard funded programmes offer a unique low-cost opportunity to reskill, upskill and new-skill employees across a spectrum of critical and emerging industry roles. The below table gives an at-a-glance summary of the IOB programmes approved for funding.
These programmes address areas where critical skills shortages exist and, consequently, offer an opportunity for accelerated employee development. All are accredited by UCD, part-time and delivered 100% online. They have been designed and are delivered to complement the work-life balance of busy professionals working across the industry. Our experience to date with funded programmes is that demand will most likely exceed the supply of places.
