3 courses with a choice of study modesView our Springboard+ Courses
Free higher education
Springboard+ provides free higher education courses for people who are unemployed. Employed students can also apply for a Springboard+ course but must pay a 10% contribution toward the course fee for Level 7 courses. To learn more, visit Springboard’s website and choose Griffith College as the provider. Or, you can call our Dublin and Limerick campuses where Springboard+ courses are offered.
Study modes to suit you
Since Springboard+ courses cater specifically to the unemployed, homemakers and other non-traditional students, a variety of study options are available. Full-time, part-time and blended learning options are all available, so you can study the way you choose. Griffith operates an open-door policy which means learner support and guidance is readily available, and our lecturers are readily available to help.
Study in a range of fields
Courses are offered in a range of in-demand fields, including information and communications technology (ICT), construction, hospitality, business start-up and international financial services. Every single Springboard+ course qualifies students in a growing industry sector with a high demand for new personnel. In particular, the Information Communications Technology initiative offers ICT Conversion courses to specially qualified students according to Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Policies and to those with relevant past experience.
Springboard+ is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
