Munster Technological University has secured €3 million in funding to provide over 1000 places under the Government’s Springboard and Human Capital Initiatives for the academic year 2022/2023.
In total, MTU is offering 34 Springboard+ courses in Kerry and Cork as part of its suite of part-time offerings.
Michael Loftus, Vice President for External Affairs at MTU said the university is committed to the development of graduates who have the skills required by industry.
“While this focus has always been centrally important to our work, it is now more vital than ever that we work to support industry at a time of unprecedented challenge associated with geopolitical events and the aftermath of Covid-19,” said Mr Loftus.
Springboard courses are free for people who are unemployed, those who were previously self-employed and returners to the workforce.
