Brendan Smith encourages those looking for a career change to visit The Right Course

Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan and Monaghan, Brendan Smith is encouraging people looking to change careers or take on something new to visit The Right Course for education and training options.

Deputy Brendan Smith commented, “The Right Course is a very good one-stop shop for businesses, employees or unemployed persons and outlines the third level options available to them. This can be a short part-time course, a course for an individual in employment or an option to return to third level.

“Launched in January last year, the level of interest in The Right Course has been highlighted by the fact that it is the most viewed non-Covid campaign on this year.”

The one-stop shop outlines the further education and training places and the courses in higher education on offer, and information for those on a social welfare payment.

Business owners are also encouraged to explore the range of upskilling options available from Skillnet Ireland including enterprise-led business supports, targeted upskilling opportunities for employees in businesses, free online training programmes and virtual job placements.

Almost 500,000 people visited the site over the year.
