These courses are designed and developed in close collaboration with industry partners, provide a dynamic pipeline of job-ready graduates, with up-to-the-minute skills, and valuable qualifications, for sectors of the Irish economy that are expanding and recruiting.
Since 2011, the Exchequer investment of €113 million has allowed 30,000 jobseekers to partake in Springboard courses. CIT has an excellent record of success under the Springboard Initiative with very positive outcomes for its students.
Orla Flynn Vice President for External affairs at CIT stated that “CIT has a long track record of delivering work-relevant programmes under the Springboard initiative, enabling many learners to re-engage with education, gain new skills and find employment. Our offerings for 2017 are drawn from key areas of strength in CIT such as manufacturing, engineering and cloud computing. We look forward to welcoming new Springboard students to CIT later this year and at the same time connecting them to relevant industry partners”.
