Springboard+ is an upskilling initiative in higher education in Ireland, which enables participants to gain qualifications in areas where there are job opportunities. Approximately 200 courses are offered at certificate, degree or masters level, in growing sectors such as ICT, manufacturing and international financial services. Springboard+ is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF programme for employability, inclusion and learning 2014-2020. There is no charge to learners who participate in a Springboard+ course. Between 2011-16, 16% of Springboard+ participants had no previous higher education qualification.
