Specific Skills Training

“Specific Skills Training” is co-funded by the Irish Government, the European Social Fund and the Youth Employment Initiative as part of the ESF Programme for Employability Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020

Full Time Day courses are designed to provide learners with a range of employability related skills and formal vocational qualifications to facilitate those entering the labour market for the first time and persons wishing to update or acquire new skills and progress to access market-led specific skills courses. Courses lead to QQI Awards at levels 4, 5 and 6 and/or to industry recognised accreditation (e.g City & Guilds, ACCA, Microsoft, CompTIA).

The duration of training can vary. Short modular courses are typically 6 weeks and longer courses can be up to 40 weeks in duration. The majority of day courses are delivered on a full-time basis throughout the year in outreach locations. Courses are coordinated by contracted providers allowing Tipperary ETB the flexibility to meet changing industry demands.
