9,000 FREE higher education courses are now available through Springboard+.

Springboard+ allows unemployed people to re-skill in areas where we know there are sustainable jobs, and eligible participants are able to retain their social protection payment whilst on the course.

The courses are available nationwide and there are three showcase events taking place this month: Galway 14th August (Hotel Meyrick); Dublin 18th August (Mansion House) and Cork 20th August (Metropole Hotel). All events run from 1pm-7pm. In attendance at each event will be Springboard+ course providers, businesses and DSP officials.
