What Next : Workplace learning

Skills for Work


Skills for Work is a national programme aimed at providing training opportunities to help employees deal with the basic skills demand of the workplace.  The initiative is funded by the Irish government under the Department of Education and Skills, and delivered by the newly formed Education and Training Boards (ETBs) across the country.  The project is managed nationally by Dublin and Dún Laoghaire ETB. 

The Skills for Work Programme is available to private sector companies and is a flexible initiative which can be designed to suit the learning needs of employees at a time and venue which suits both employers and employees.  There are no tuition fees and accreditation may be offered as part of the programme.  A range of subjects may be available to the employee. 

To take part in a Skills for Work programme, you must be over 18 in employment (either part time or full time) and have the support of your employer.  If your skills are out of date or you lack qualifications and are willing to participate on a voluntary basis then Skills for Work may be suitable for you.
