If you are in receipt of a Social Welfare Payment or Pandemic Unemployment Payment, you may be eligible for a grant to pay for our courses.
A person who is getting one of a number of social welfare payments, including jobseekers and the pandemic unemployment payment (PUP), can apply to the Department of Social Protection for a training support grant of up to €1,000. This grant provides the financial resources to respond to the identified training needs of a jobseeker.
The Training Support Grant is for short term training only. It is there to facilitate any jobseeker who can show the need for training to help them gain employment / self employment or can demonstrate a gap in their certification which prevents them getting a job.
See our Frequently Asked Questions below on the TSG process.
Contact your nearest Intreo / Social Welfare office and ask about the Training Support Grant.
Funding is approved by discussing your training needs with a case officer in your Intreo Office.
Once funding has been approved by your case officer, an application form will be sent directly to the Training Provider to complete for approval.
Once the Training Provider application form is approved, you will have instant access to the course.
The Minister for Social Protection has confirmed that people who have been unemployed for over a year can claim a €1000 grant if they complete a short training course.
