Springboard+ courses now open for applications at TU Dublin

9 Aug, 2021

TU Dublin is delighted to offer a broad and varied range of courses under the Springboard+ initiative in 2021. Applications are now being accepted for a total of 28 courses in Architecture & Built Environment, Art, Design & Media, Business and Computing, IT & Maths, Engineering and Sciences. 

Springboard+ is an upskilling initiative in higher education which offers free and subsidised programmes at certificate, degree and masters level leading to qualifications in areas where there are employment opportunities in the economy. It is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF programme for employability, inclusion and learning.

Courses are free for people who are unemployed, who were previously self-employed, and people returning to work. NFQ level 6 courses (higher and advanced certificates) are also free for employed people.

Speaking at the Launch of Springboard courses in June 2021, Minister of State for Skills and Further Education Niall Collins said

“Springboard+ training programmes provide people who are unemployed, those looking to return to the workforce and those in employment with a great opportunity to upskill or reskill in areas in which employers need skilled workers. I am particularly pleased that courses provided under Springboard+ 2021 will continue to be delivered in a flexible manner, 90% of Springboard+ courses will be delivered in a more flexible format which will enable more people to engage in upskilling and reskilling.”
