ISME Skillnet supports the workforce development needs of businesses within the SME sector. We offer a small number/selection of industry-led and fully funded programmes for people who are not in employment, subject to eligibility criteria and the availability of places. If you are currently not in employment and wish to upskill or reskill, click here for details of Skills Connect training for people seeking employment. Further details of Skills Connect and the eligibility criteria can be found on the Skillnet Ireland website here.

I thought the 12-week program by ISME was excellent in giving someone the tools needed to kick start their new business or even grasp some best practices that other businesses use. From items such as smart goal setting to developing your business plan to price setting, brand focus, good communication and other ways to improve your business, it will definitely help me in my next business venture this year. Working as part of a group of like-minded positive business people was a great benefit.
