Colleges and Education Providers to Showcase Part Time Flexible Funded Course Options to Employees
Ennis Chamber is delighted to partner with Mid-West Regional Skills Forum in co-hosting an upskilling information event for employers and employees in Ennis on Wednesday, September 25.
All colleges and training providers operating in the Mid-West will be on hand to outline the wide range of part-time, online and flexible learning course available in this region.
The event, being held in Civic Room, Waterpark House, Drumbiggle Road, Ennis, to run from 9am until 1pm.
Commenting on the event, Margaret O’Brien, CEO Ennis Chamber said: “This event, in partnership with the Mid-West Regional Skills Forum is about creating awareness of the many ways employees can upskill to ensure that we have a highly skilled and talented workforce in the Mid-West region. It’s a timely event given that businesses and employees are planning their training options for the year ahead.”
Mid-West Regional Skills Forum manager Joe Leddin commenting on the value of an event of this nature added: “Talent is now the determining factor for companies to maintain competitiveness. Bringing the Education & Training providers off campus to meet industry as demonstrated in our two previous events is delivering benefits for those looking to upskill or reskill.”
Local education training providers including the University of Limerick, Limerick Institute of Technology, Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board, Griffith College and Shannon Chamber Skillnet, all of whom offer part-time flexible learning courses that are funded or part-funded by Government, will be in attendance.
Joe Leddin pointed out that while lifelong learning is not new; what is new is the rapid pace of change in technology with career pathways less defined. The purpose of this upskilling event is to showcase to employers and employees the range of Government-funded part-time flexible learning courses available.”
Margaret O’Brien concluded, “This event, which is free of charge to attend, is open to everyone working in local companies and we would encourage companies to give their employees the time off to attend. HR managers are also very welcome.
