Hospitality businesses in the county are being encouraged to engage with the latest Springboard courses.
The Institute of Technology, Tralee, which has an extensive Culinary Arts department, has launched a number of Springboard courses for the hotel and catering industry.
Springboard offerings are 100% free for jobseekers and other categories of social welfare recipients, and 90% free for employed people.
The courses on offer include certificates, diplomas and honours degree qualifications in the hospitality sector.
Lecturer in IT Tralee TJ O’Connor says it’s a great chance for both businesses and individuals to benefit from the collaboration.
