CORONAVIRUS: FREE SHORT-TERM COURSES TO IMPROVE SKILLS

If you’ve been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19), a range of free, fully-accredited courses are now available to help you retrain and improve your skills.  The Department for the Economy is supporting over 3,000 free places on short courses, delivered by local further and higher education providers.  This follows the 2,000 places previously announced in June.

Opportunities are available from entry to postgraduate levels, focussing on skills identified by industry, linked to priority economic sectors, including:

  • digital skills
  • green technologies
  • healthcare and life sciences
  • leadership and management

Most courses will be delivered online and how you take part will be flexible to fit around your busy lives. They will provide an opportunity to re-skill and upskill into areas where job growth is expected to be high as we emerge from the impact of coronavirus.

All courses include an accredited qualification and will finish by 31 March 2021.
