Training is FREE to eligible employed people (full and / or part-time)

Courses details:

The above list is not definitive and where there is a specific need we will investigate any areas where you believe there is a training need outside of courses already offered to you through LEO Limerick. Minimum number for a group is 6 and maximum 9 but where you have less than 5 employees we work hard to cluster individuals across industries in specific areas of training. If you are interested in having a Skills for Work Programme as part of your professional development initiative for staff, or you feel you could benefit from specific training in a specific area, please feel free to contact our local Coordinators;
