Training funding success

The SFA is delighted to announce it has successfully secured Skillnet Ireland funding to provide subsidised training to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The newly established SFA Skillnet training network aims to improve the competitiveness and productivity of Irish SMEs through training across three core areas, namely:

  1. SME Management Skills
  2. The Talent Lifecycle; and
  3. Future Skills (tying in with the SFA’s Grow Scale Succeed initiative)

We are pleased to also announce that Geraldine Lavin has joined the SFA team as the SFA Skillnet Network Manager. Geraldine brings a wealth of training experience to the team from her work with SMEs and business support organisations.


Critical to the success of this initiative will be input from you, our members. We will formally launch the SFA Skillnet soon and in the meantime, please contact Geraldine on or 01 605 1606 to discuss your training needs.


The SFA Skillnet is co-funded by Skillnet Ireland and member companies. Skillnet Ireland is funded from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education and Skills.
