Skills to Advance-Upskilling for Employees

Skills to advance is a further education and training policy framework for the skills development of people in employment. Under this policy, DIFE offers targeted support to respond to the changing nature of jobs and skill requirements, particularly for anyone who may be working in sectors or occupations which are experiencing significant change. Under Skills to Advance, employees may qualify for highly subsidised training which can be delivered on a part-time basis, to suit those in employment.

If you are currently employed, either full or part-time and are interested in upskilling or reskilling in any of our programmes and courses, please email [email protected] for further details.
