M1-Drogheda Chamber Skillnet / M1-Drogheda Chamber Skillnet


Drogheda Chamber understands that training and up-skilling are key elements in keeping businesses competitive, increases turnover and growth, and helps to motivate and retain staff, and develop talent. With this in mind, we have established the ‘M1-Drogheda Chamber’ Skillnet to support companies across the NorthEast region to access subsidised training in a local setting. The initiative is supported by Skillnet Ireland, and its focus is to communicate with businesses along the M1 Corridor, to listen to their training needs and current and future skill shortages, and to support them by organising training courses which are impactful, relevant and deliver results. Member companies actively participate in determining their own training needs and how, when and where their training will be facilitated. We foster a collaborative enterprise networking approach and provide a flexible and fast response to ever-changing skill demands.

All courses are subsidised by Skillnet Ireland through the Department of Education Skillnet which is funded from the National Training Fund. M1-Drogheda Chamber Skillnet is able to offer significant subsidies towards training courses and staff development to companies who are members of Drogheda & District Chamber of Commerce. Non-Chamber members will also be able to access the valuable resources of a locally-based Skillnet network and ensure that they stay up to date on the latest training developments for their business sector. This provides high standards of relevant training, tailored to suit the specific needs of your business, delivered in a convenient location at exceptional value for money.
