itag Skillnet was set up in 2002 to provide bespoke technical and professional training to employees working in the ICT sector along with the Atlantic gateway. We strive to add business value to our member companies by ensuring that their workforce is highly trained in the latest technologies which in turn allows them to compete globally while creating a sustainable industry.
We aim to deliver the highest quality learning and development solutions that are enterprise-led, customised and that have a significant impact on the trainee, the enterprise, sector, and the wider economy.
itag Skillnet is co-funded by Skillnet Ireland and our member companies. Skillnet Ireland is funded from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education and Skills.
itag Skillnet primarily focuses on supporting those in employment within the technology sector. Whilst our key focus is on the needs of member companies, we also offer a small number of fully-funded programmes for jobseekers, subject to eligibility criteria and places being available on the programme.
We offer a limited number of FREE places to those who are unemployed and seeking to increase their employment prospects through up-skilling in relevant training. If you are currently unemployed, you may be eligible to attend free training which will not impact on your social welfare payments or benefits (for those who are in receipt of such payments).
