Programme Detail:

Through the Skillnet Ireland ReBound initiative, the Restaurant and Hospitality Skillnet is supporting businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. The Skillnet Network will provide fully-funded, sector-specific training programmes for business owners and managers to address critical issues relating to:

  1. Site-specific risk assessments
  2. Implementing control measures (PPE, hygiene standards, signage etc)
  3. Staff engagement, well-being and communication
  4. Health and safety for customers
  5. Workplace policies and operating procedures
  6. Change management and managing staff
  7. Lead worker representative
  8. Goal setting and future planning


Eight unique programmes have been developed to address the lack of industry-specific COVID-19 training programmes. These programmes will all be delivered virtually, to allow owners and managers take part while ensuring they can manage the day-to-day requirements of recovering their businesses. This initiative will ensure restaurant and hospitality businesses have the knowledge and skills to reopen their businesses safely.
