IBAT College Offers Free Online Courses to Essential Workers in Ireland

As of Wednesday 15 April, IBAT College is offering fully funded* online professional training courses to essential workers, in a bid to recognise the ongoing efforts in combatting COVID-19 and to give back to the wider community.

The courses, that typically last 13 weeks, will also be extended to workers who have had their employment affected as a result of COVID-19. This will allow them to build up skills they need to be successful in their careers moving forward. 

With the backing of academic staff, we’ll give workers access to high-quality qualifications across a range of subject areas including business, IT, finance and management over a six-month period. Examples of the courses on offer include Human Resource Management, Project Management, Sales and Marketing, Front End Web Development, Predictive Data Analytics and Mobile App Development.

Commenting on the initiative, Nitin Gupta, Joint Interim Managing Director at IBAT said: “These are unprecedented times. The spread of COVID-19 across the world has impacted every one of us and our essential workers are on the frontline of the response to tackling the virus.

“At IBAT College Dublin, we are committed to supporting our essential workers in every way we can and invite them to take up the fully funded online courses and programmes being made available to them and support their learning journey with us.

“Our courses are also aimed at equipping laid-off workers with the essential skills for when they re-enter the market when this is all behind us. We basically thought, what could we do to support the community we operate in, and I am heartened by the level of support given by our amazing lecturers that has made this possible. Equally, we have had great support and positive feedback from our current students on the smooth transition of our courses to online learning in light of the current pandemic.”
