itag Skillnet is a network of over 100 companies involved in upskilling employees in member technology companies along the Atlantic Coast.
The companies range from micro start-ups to local multi-nationals with a strong emphasis on the ICT Sector. The training network evolved from the promoter organisation, the Innovation Technology AtlanTec Gateway (itag).
itag Skillnet’s primary objective is to strengthen and develop the ICT sector by improving the skills of the talent pool and reducing training costs through the delivery of bespoke enterprise-led training and learning programmes. To date, itag Skillnet has trained over 7,000 employees from member companies.
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 Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science.
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).
