IT Sligo is offering 20 courses in the areas of Science, Technology and Engineering funded by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) under the Springboard+ 2020 programme.
The courses are free for unemployed participants and for all participants on level 6 programmes, with 90% funding for those in employment on programmes from level 7 to level 9. These are delivered part time online and are completed within one year.
The 2020 Springboard allocations were launched today (Wednesday, June 17) by Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh TD, Minister of State for Higher Education Mary Mitchell O’Connor and Minister of State for Training Skills, Innovation, Research and Development John Halligan.
Springboard courses are tailored to meet key growth areas such as Biopharmaceutical Science, Information Technology, Lean Sigma and Quality.
IT Sligo has received funding for Springboard courses from Springboard every year since 2011, and its courses are designed for those actively seeking employment or those already in employment who are wishing to upskill.
IT Sligo is a national leader in developing and delivering online education. Its online learning programmes are designed for students who want to study part time at a pace that matches their work/life balance. Course delivery is flexible and includes web-cast classes, which are also recorded so that students who are unable to take part in the live sessions can access them at any time.
All content is delivered online with either limited or no attendance requirement.
The Springboard-funded courses at IT Sligo are accredited programmes and confer Certificates on graduation from levels 6 through to Postgraduate level 9.
