Workplace Education

Skills For Work is a national programme aimed at providing training opportunities to help employees deal with the basic skills demands of the workplace.

The initiative is funded by the Irish Government under the Department of Education and Skills and delivered by Education & Training Boards (ETB) across the country.

At Blanchardstown Adult Education Service, the SFW coordinator works closely with local employers to provide training to employees who would like to upskill.
