The feedback from our staff who attended the Supervisor Development Course, developed through the Sligo Chamber Skillnet, was excellent. They were very enthusiastic about the course and enjoyed the interactive aspect of it. They were able to take scenarios presented during the programme and reflect them back to our business, which is great as it makes learning a lot easier if you are dealing with real life situations. All in all, a very good day’s training for our staff.

The Supervisory and Managerial Programmes that we availed of through the Sligo Chamber Skillnet have really allowed us to develop our staff and are a key factor to our continued success.
