Speaking today, President of DkIT, Michael Mulvey, PhD, said

 

“We are delighted to welcome additional July Stimulus funding by the Government to support people to upskill or retrain in critical areas where there are known skills gaps or shortages in our region, such as computing, renewable energy and innovation in hotel revenue management. 2020 has been a challenging year businesses and workers and as uncertainty continues to persist, people should take this opportunity to invest in themselves through additional training and professional development to adapt to new challenges and compete in today’s evolving workplace. These funded courses provide an opportunity to do this at a time where personal finances for l may be tight and I would encourage people to apply while places still remain.”
