Skillnet Ireland allocates funding for businesses to understand their digital skills needs and support the upskilling of their staff.

Funding will is allocated through the Learning Networks, which are groups of businesses within the same industry sector or region with similar training needs, so they can receive subsidised training.

All private sector businesses of any size, including sole traders, that are based in the Republic of Ireland are eligible to undertake part-funded upskilling. Businesses can engage with one or more existing Skillnet Networks (e.g., there are four of them providing expertise in the ICT sector, including emerging technologies), which have experience in the chosen sector or region and understand the specific business needs.
