In positive news for both education and future employment, Innopharma College of Applied Sciences is delighted to announce free education places with our range of Springboard programmes for 2017.
What is a Springboard Course?
Springboard is the highly successful Government and ESF initiative to increase the workforce and lower unemployment by offering free educational places which are open to almost everyone. The success of the scheme over the past six years has seen the live register figures halved from 15% to 6.8%. The eligibility criteria make places available to those currently in employment, the unemployed, and those who were self- employed, and are actively seeking work.
The Government strategically target training for industries which trends show the most potential growth and demand in, thus future proofing careers for the courses’ participants.
Get In-Demand Skills
Innopharma College’s courses mirror those areas identified by the Government with free Springboard places on courses in the flourishing sectors of Pharmaceutical, MedTech and Food Production. Ireland's pharmaceutical industry is booming with most of the top pharmaceutical companies based here which has resulted in Ireland is the largest net exporter of medicines in the world, generating over 50% of our country’s exports so it’s plain to see opportunities in this area.
The country can also boast being the 2nd largest exporter of MedTech (Medical Device) products in Europe and we are fast becoming a hub for the industry with over 100 MedTech companies in Ireland including 13 of the top 15 Medical Device companies in the world.
Innopharma’s Food Science courses are another example of training in an area of endless opportunity as it is one of the biggest and most dynamic industries in Ireland. Food is Ireland’s largest indigenous sector and our exports now exceed €10 billion annually.
