South West Gnó Skillnet has secured funding for 2017 and plans to deliver quality training for enterprises from the Gaeltachtaí, as well as Killarney and across the South West region. In 2016, South West Gnó Skillnet exceeded its targets and a total of 3,500 training days were completed by participants attending the 100+ training programmes that were delivered for South West Gnó Skillnet members. 500 trainees availed of these courses and 150 job seekers were facilitated on training programmes. Network Manager Katie Kerin said she was very happy with the response and uptake of training from Member Companies. “We delivered training events across a diverse range of areas such as Management Development, HR & Planning issues, Marketing, Sales and IT in 2016.” A number of specialised training initiatives are planned for the coming months. Participation in these training events is open to all in the region. Please contact Oonagh or Bríd on 064 6636622 or visit www.southwestgno.com for further information.
