Funding of €1.5 million has been allocated to Waterford Institute of Technology to deliver 354 free higher education skills conversion courses under Springboard+ 2017, Minister John Halligan announced last week.

The part-time and full-time places are targeted at jobseekers and those in employment or self-employment who wish to upskill, reskill or cross skill and Minister

Halligan said he was especially pleased that – for the first time ever - homemakers are also eligible to participate in Springboard+ courses this year:

“It is long overdue that homemakers may finally avail of this opportunity to transition back to the workforce. The criteria is that the homemaker has been out of the work environment for at least one year due to childcare or other caring obligations and has a previous history of employment.

“Given this expansion of the eligibility criteria for Springboard+ 2017, I am delighted to see that there will be a good mix of delivery modes of courses which will ensure that all participants, whether unemployed, in employment or homemakers, will be able to avail of a suitable course.

Under Springboard+ 2017, 54% of courses will be delivered on a blended, distance and e-learning basis.”

Minister Halligan, with Minister for Education Richard Bruton, launched a call for proposals for new courses to be run under Springboard+ 2017 last February. He said a broad range of Waterford companies had responded to this and, as a result, the new courses at WIT are tailored to meet the specific skills required in the region.
