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.
