Welcome to Shannon Chamber Skillnet
Shannon Chamber has been operating a Skillnet network since September of 2015. It was set up in response to a demand for new areas of training and for training that would be member-driven. Our network is funded by member companies and the training networks programme, an initiative of Skillnet Ireland, funded from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education and Skills.
Our purpose, as a Skillnet, is to provide member companies with training directly suited to their needs; we assess these requirements annually through undertaking a learning needs analysis, the feedback from which directs our annual training programme offering. We are led by a Steering Group, which is representative of a number of businesses in the greater Shannon area.
Shannon Chamber Skillnet focuses on supporting those in employment within the Mid West region. A number of other Skillnet Networks participate in the Skillnet Ireland Employment Activation programme. This initiative is designed exclusively for unemployed people and includes free training in skills in demand by companies combined with direct access to employers through meaningful work placements. For further information on Skillnet Networks offering free training programmes for those seeking employment, subject to eligibility criteria, see the Skillnet Ireland website.
Enhancing management capacity, particularly in Small and Medium enterprises (SMEs), is a national policy imperative and a priority for Skillnet Ireland and it’s Learning Networks. Shannon Chamber Skillnet offer tailored training and networking opportunities through a range of Management Development programmes.
Strengthening SME productivity remains a priority for Skillnet Ireland. We would like to thank you for your dedication in supporting the management development agenda and we are confident that you will continue to grow and develop these offerings.
Please contact our Network manager, Cillian Griffey (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your company’s training requirements.
