230 Springboard+ places are being offered to jobseekers in the Limerick region on 18 programmes in the areas of Science, Business, Computing, Engineering and Languages as the University of Limerick officially launched its Continuing and Professional Education Division (CPE) with Minister for Education Jan O’Sullivan.

CPE is a dedicated division of the University of Limerick providing continuing and professional development programmes to individuals, organisations, community and Government bodies. CPE provides professional relevant skills to develop careers, providing internationally recognised qualifications with programmes that are practically focused and applying the knowledge acquired back to the organisation.

The Springboard+ programmes are delivered flexibly allowing jobseekers retain their social protection supports and continue their search for employment. A key feature of the initiative is work placement of students in employer organisations, coordinated by CPE.

All courses lead to qualifications in enterprise sectors which are growing and need skilled personnel, including information and communications technology (ICT), manufacturing and international financial services.  The Springboard+ programmes have had extensive input by industry into their content and design and have been developed to meet targeted skills needs and will maximise job opportunities for participants from these courses.
