Midland Border East Skillnet primarily focusses on supporting those in employment within the food, seafood and drink sectors sector/region. Whilst our key focus is on the needs of member companies, we also offer a small number of fully-funded programmes for jobseekers, subject to eligibility criteria and places being available on the programme.

We offer a limited number of FREE places to those who are unemployed and seeking to increase their employment prospects through up-skilling in relevant training. If you are currently unemployed, you may be eligible to attend training with Midland Border East Skillnet with no charge or impact on your social welfare payments or benefits (for those who are in receipt of such payments). Check eligibility criteria below.

Several other Skillnet Networks participate in the Skillnet Ireland Employment Activation programme. This initiative is designed exclusively for unemployed people and includes free training in skills in demand by companies combined with direct access to employers through meaningful work placements. For information on other Skillnet Networks offering free training programmes for those seeking employment, see the Skillnet Ireland website or the Eligibility Criteria details here.
