Wexford People - - EDUCATION & COURSES -

THE an­nounce­ment that Wex­ford Cham­ber Skill­net has been ap­proved for ad­di­tional fund­ing in 2019 has been wel­comed by Wex­ford busi­nesses.

In 2018 Wex­ford Cham­ber Skill­net worked with over 260 Wex­ford com­pa­nies, up­skilling over 800 of their staff in a broad va­ri­ety of train­ing pro­grammes. The Net­work has con­tin­ued to grow and de­velop since join­ing Skill­net Ire­land in 2016, of­fer­ing sub­sidised cour­ses to com­pa­nies in the south east re­gion. All pro­grammes are de­liv­ered as a re­sult of con­tin­ued co­op­er­a­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion from en­ter­prises in the re­gion.

Wex­ford Cham­ber Skill­net has un­veiled their train­ing pro­gramme for the com­ing spring with the in­clu­sion of a num­ber of new pro­grammes. The Net­work hopes to de­liver a new part time Diploma in Man­age­ment Ef­fec­tive­ness and Prac­tice pro­gramme, tai­lored specif­i­cally for those in or seek­ing su­per­vi­sory/man­age­ment lead roles.

This pro­gramme pro­vides a com­ple­men­tary set of mod­ules, which al­lows the stu­dent to ex­plore top­ics such as, hu­man re­source man­age­ment, mar­ket­ing man­age­ment, team lead­er­ship and fi­nan­cial man­age­ment. The pro­gramme con­sists of six mod­ules, each de­liv­ered one day a week for three weeks. Stu­dents can exit with a stand­alone level 7 Cer­tifi­cate in any of the mod­ules or com­plete the full set of six mod­ules to re­ceive their Diploma. The en­tire pro­gramme is de­liv­ered in fif­teen days over 2019. For more in­for­ma­tion please log onto our web­site.

An­other new pro­gramme in­cluded in this year’s sched­ule is the Ne­bosh Cer­tifi­cate in En­vi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment aimed at man­agers, su­per­vi­sors and oth­ers who have re­spon­si­bil­ity for man­ag­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues, as part of their day to day du­ties. This is an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised and glob­ally re­spected en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment qual­i­fi­ca­tion, which is de­liv­ered over five days.

Due to con­tin­ued de­mand from in­dus­try Wex­ford Cham­ber Skill­net will con­tinue to of­fer pro­grammes in Busi­ness Skills, Man­u­fac­tur­ing & Safety in the Work­place, Hos­pi­tal­ity & Food Safety cour­ses, of­fer­ing 20-25% fund­ing.

This year the Net­work also hopes to de­liver a Care Skills pro­gramme and a level 6 Child­care pro­gramme which will be 100% funded to un­em­ployed peo­ple.
