If you are in receipt of a Social Welfare payment, you may be eligible for a grant to pay for our courses?
TSG (Training Support Grant) /
TESG Support Grant
A person who is getting one of a number of social welfare payments, including jobseekers and the pandemic unemployment payment (PUP), can apply to the Department of Social Protection for a training support grant of up to €1,000. This grant provides the financial resources to respond to the identified training needs of a jobseeker. As part of the July Stimulus the funding available to a jobseeker increased from €500 per year to €1,000
The Training Support Grant is there to facilitate any jobseeker who can show the need for training to help them gain employment / self employment or can demonstrate a gap in their certification which prevents them getting a job. The Training Support Grant is for short term training only.
