Skills Focus

The Skills Focus programme improves employee skill levels and provides workforces with industry-specific knowledge and professional accreditations. It enables employers to upskill their team and ultimately enhance their business’ productivity and profitability.

Skill Focus training is supported by the Department for the Economy, so 75% of the training costs are covered by the Government.
