Courses.ie is Ireland’s largest independent for courses in Ireland. We list full-time and part-time courses of all types so that you can find the best course for you.

Springboard+ began in 2011 as part of the Government’s Jobs Initiative. Its aim is to provide free and heavily subsidised upskilling and reskilling opportunities through higher education in areas where there is an identified skills need. A particular emphasis of the initiative is upskilling people who are unemployed or in receipt of a social welfare payment.

Springboard+ complements the core State-funded education and training system and is one of a number of initiatives designed to support people back into employment, improve the skills of those in employment, and to build the supply of skilled graduates to meet current and future skill needs of the Irish economy.
