Representing an investment of £4.6million, the courses will have a focus on digital skills and be delivered by the local colleges and universities.



Encouraging people to apply, the Minister said, “I am keenly aware of the impact Covid-19 has had on the employment of so many people across a wide range of sectors.

“These 3,000 online training places will provide people with the opportunity to upskill and reskill, enabling them to pursue a career in what are growing local sectors.

“Developing the skills of our people right across Northern Ireland is a key priority for me as we begin the process of rebuilding our economy.

She continued, “This investment builds on my previous announcement in June of £1.7million for online training places.



“And I am determined to keep skills at the centre of our long term strategic plans.

“Courses will be available from both further and higher education institutions.

The Economy Minister added, “I urge anyone who is eligible to access this free training.”



The courses will be delivered online, except where there is a technical aspect which requires face-to-face learning.
