Make the most of this opportunity – Update skills

There are many ways to update your skill set, even in the current climate when we have to stay close to home.  For years now, South Kerry Local Employment Service has been referring people onto our wide catalogue of training courses that we pay for (if needed) as well as providing supports to make it easy to register and continue learning until courses are completed.

One of the online platforms we often use is eCollege, provided by Solas who recently announced that their entire set of courses is temporarily free to anyone!   Three popular courses we find people want are:

Yes, eCollege is geared mostly at education in IT or Technical areas, but there are a few others topics also like Business, Office Productivity and Learn how to speak Irish. If there’s nothing there for you, get in touch with us as we have MANY resources other than eCollege available, some which you can’t access any other way.

If something on eCollege does catch your eye but you want to discuss an aspect of it, or if you want a hand registering with eCollege, give us a shout and we’ll help you get on the right path.
