Why Skills Connect?

Skills Connect facilitates the rapid reskilling of workers most impacted by COVID-19.

Skills Connect is designed in partnership with enterprises to enhance cross-sector employability and support people who have lost their jobs. It offers a suite of bespoke upskilling and training solutions, designed by the enterprise, aimed at supporting re-entry into the workforce.

Skills Connect offers free online training programmes and enterprise-led virtual job placements to job seekers looking for new jobs and careers. This valuable initiative offers individuals the opportunity to develop new skills or reskill, build confidence, and access practical on-the-job training.

Gréasán na Meán Skillnet welcomes this new innovative online training initiative by Skillnet Ireland and looks forward to receiving our first participants this January, continuing and expanding our support of businesses within the media community in 2021.

Gréasán na Meán Skillnet is working with businesses to design Skills Connect programmes that meet the needs of both businesses and individuals.
