Dundalk Chamber Skillnet is a multi-sector business network for companies of all sizes in Dundalk and the North East.
Network companies work collaboratively to respond locally to skills needs within their businesses. The network supports regional development by helping local businesses to arrive at shared local solutions that are more accessible, more affordable and ultimately, more effective at meeting their needs. The network addresses both technical and non-technical skills needs across multiple sectors.
The aim of the network is to support a culture of continuous learning in network member companies by providing tailor made training interventions that are enterprise led. By undertaking regular training needs analysis, the Skillnet can allow network members the opportunity to input into the programme design, duration and certification as well as location and dates of delivery.
Dundalk Chamber Skillnet is promoted by Dundalk Chamber of Commerce. Membership of the network is open to private enterprises in the Greater Dundalk Area and North East Region.
