Exciting Opportunities for Job Seekers in the South
Published on: Monday, 08 July 2013
Cork Institute of Technology is running 13 programmes this September under the Springboard Initiative with places for 242 job-seekers. Participants on these programmes will have an opportunity to learn and develop new skills that are highly sought after by employers in the region.
The Springboard programmes available in CIT this September range from Cloud Technologies to Environmental and Energy Engineering. This year the Higher Diploma in Cloud and Mobile Software Development is available fully on-line and is highly sought after by employers.
Springboard gives an opportunity to job seekers, be they those who have lost a job or who were previously self-employed, to take part-time, work-focused, courses at third level, free of charge, while maintaining their benefits. According to a recent review of the initiative nationally, within 6 weeks of completing a Springboard course, 30% were in employment.
Those interested in enrolling on a Springboard course are encouraged to log onto www.springboardcourses.ie which will provide details of eligibility and full information on course provision.
