Welcome to the Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet Website.
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 training solutions for their management and staff.
All of the training courses we provide are open to any organisation within the Carlow and Kilkenny region, so if you are an interested in any of the programmes listed on our website or you are looking for a specific training program that is applicable to your organisation, we would be delighted to hear from you.
