FEXCO develops third-level training courses for staff
ONE of the country's most successful multinational companies has developed two third-level training courses for employees.
Already 14 of FEXCO's 1,000 Irish employees are halfway through studying for their certificates in sales through service, which was developed in conjunction with Tralee Institute of Technology.
The college is also offering certificate courses in Team Leadership, a Level Six National Framework of Qualification (NFQ), which begins this autumn.
Both courses, which are nationally recognised, were officially launched by Minister of State for Education and Skills Ciaran Cannon in FEXCO's headquarters in Killorglin, Co Kerry.
The financial services and business solutions provider employs 2,100 in 28 different countries.
Mr Cannon said that as an Irishman he felt very proud of FEXCO's achievements internationally and he commended the company and Tralee IT for their "vision and foresight" in developing courses that were tailor-made for business.
"This really is cutting edge and an excellent example of how private-sector organisations and third-level institutions can work together," Mr Cannon said.
