If you’re aged 18 and over and eligible to work in Northern Ireland, a range of free accredited courses are available to help you re-train and re-skill, through SKILL UP – the flexible skills programme.
Look up. Move up. Skill up.
The Department for the Economy, with funding from the Northern Ireland Office and the Department of Finance, is supporting free short courses, delivered by the local further and higher education providers.
There are up to 7000 free places available until end of June 2023 with many more to follow in the next few years.
Opportunities are available from entry to postgraduate levels, focussing on skills identified by industry, linked to priority economic sectors, including:
healthcare and life sciences
leadership and management
Most courses will be delivered online and will provide an opportunity to re-skill and upskill into areas where job growth is expected to be high as we emerge from the impact of coronavirus.
