Linking LocalLearning

Welcome to Waterford Skillnet.

Waterford Chamber Skillnet focuses on the critical skills required to improve the performance of member companies. The aim of the network is to identify common training needs, deliver training locally using the highest caliber trainers, dramatically reduce training costs through collaboration and attract grant aid from the National Training Fund through Skillnet Limited.

Any company that wishes to become a member of the Waterford Chamber Skillnet can benefit from being apart of a 200 member strong network with companies from similar industries deciding what training they need as well as how, where and when it should be delivered. This allows staff to participate in relevant, flexible and cost effective training, enabling companies to become more competitive and increase the internal long term career opportunities and employability of staff.

We now provide limited places to jobseekers free of charge (terms and conditions apply).
