A suite of IOB’s UCD accredited programmes have recently been approved for funding under the Government July Stimulus Provision. Join IOB for a Virtual Open Day on Friday 27 November at 1pm for more information.

The programmes are open to both individuals either seeking employment, returners to work, and graduates* (100% funded) or currently in employment and the formerly self-employed (90% funded) in the financial services industry.

They offer a unique, low-cost opportunity for individuals to re-boot their career within the industry in a new and exciting direction. These programmes address a range of competencies and will upskill and reskill you in your career across Banking, Funds and Financial Services.

All programmes are delivered 100% online and so can be taken from anywhere in Ireland for added flexibility.

This opportunity is available for a limited time only with the closing date for funding applications strictly Monday 30 November 2020. More information on the funding and the programmes can be found here.
