It’s October already, the schools are well and truly back, and our holidays are distant memories
If you are a budget holder within an organisation, you may be trying to get as much as possible out of your funds before year end! So, how does this relate to PowerPoint training?
National Training Fund
Did you know that 1% of your Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI) payment in Ireland goes towards training via the National Training Fund? The National Training Fund levy is set at 1% on reckonable earnings.
The National Training Fund supports organisations like Skillnet Ireland, which has over 70 different Business Networks, many of which are industry-specific.
The Skillnet Business Networks have funding for training for their members. While many offer partially funded places on public courses, some will fund in-house training for member organisations. The level of funding varies depending on the Skillnet Business Network, and some even offer funding towards any Irish registered organisations within their sector!
