What is the Digital Skills Accelerator Programme

COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, a severe impact on the Irish economy. Already we are seeing significant long term social and economic challenges for families, communities and local economies. Over 20,000 people in the Munster region alone, whose livelihoods are being affected, as a result of this pandemic, can take advantage of upskilling opportunities to new career paths – without affecting their PUP or Social Payments.

ICBE Business Excellence Skillnet will provide individuals, who have recently become unemployed (from Hospitality, Retail or Aviation) due to the pandemic, with an opportunity to realise a new career in Multinational companies using newly gained training in transferable skills such as problem solving, project management and data analytics..

Having engaged with a number of multinational organisations, we have identified a number of potential potential recruitment challenges being experienced placement and through virtual training courses we can help you realise new opportunities and prospects. These virtual courses have been structured in such a way to help develop participants with minimal IT skills, to a new level of knowledge and career advancement – previously unexplored.The training modules include the following:

  • Problem Solving - Lean Ireland
  • Project Management - P3.express
  • Data Analytics - Clarke Analytics


Skills Connect, an initiative from Skillnet Ireland, is designed in partnership with enterprise to enhance cross-sector employability and support people who have lost their jobs. These bespoke upskilling and training solutions, designed by enterprise, are aimed at supporting re-entry into the workforce. Skills Connect offers free online training programmes and enterprise-led virtual job placements to jobseekers looking for new jobs and careers. This valuable initiative offers individuals the opportunity to develop new skills or reskill, build confidence and access practical on-the-job training.
