The Skillnet Ireland Spider Awards entry demonstrated the impact and value of workforce development to Irish businesses by harnessing the human-interest stories from our learning networks and translating that into content that was relevant and relatable for our core SME business audience. Additionally, a critical deliverable that enabled us to achieve this was to develop a related website structure that could be adopted by each of our 65+ Skillnet Learning Networks.
