SFA Skillnet update

We are off to a flying start with over 80 participants attending SFA Skillnet subsidised training programmes in May and June. The feedback has been very positive on the trainers and the content of the programmes, and of course on the excellent value for money!


The most popular programmes to date are in sales, leadership and management skills, essential people skills, pitching to win business, health and wellness in the workplace, HR and digital marketing. We will be in touch with members soon to find out what new programmes you would like to suggest for the autumn/winter schedule.


Some of our feedback so far from member companies whose team members attend our training:


“They found the trainers very engaging; they liked that the course content wasn’t prescriptive and could be adapted to their needs,” Dave Byrne, Managing Director of Dualtron,


“The feedback was hugely positive. The team members who attended the course came back and digested the information they learned and delivered a condensed version to the rest of the team. We’re now in the process of incorporating the learnings into how we operate daily,” Jimmy Sheehan, Commercial Director of Contracting Plus.


If you would like help in figuring our your training requirements, contact Geraldine Lavin, the SFA Skillnet Network Manager, on geraldine.lavin@sfa.ie or 087 7871642.


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.
