Organiser Carlow Kilkenny Training Skillnet

Organiser of Train the Trainer

The Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet was established in January 1999 by a number of Senior Managers in organisations in the Carlow Kilkenny area. Initial discussions showed that the organisations shared common training problems, namely,

  • Access to information on courses / training, and new technologies available for training purposes
  • Sourcing training programmes
  • Finding courses that were relevant to the specific needs of each organisation
  • The location of available courses

By working together, these organisations have developed new, low cost, customised, and locally based solutions for their management and staff.
