"Digital Skills for Citizens" Grant Scheme

The Department is actively supporting people to get online and enjoy all that the internet has to offer. In a 'connected' society, digital skills are essential if we're going to realise the full social and economic potential of this digital world.

Under the new Digital Skills for Citizens Grant Scheme Minister Naughten, T.D. has awarded 15 organisations a total of €2.2m to provide basic digital skills training to people nationwide.  The Scheme aims to give people the confidence, motivation and skills to take their first steps online. They can then play their part in an increasingly digital world. 

The selected organisations will deliver classes in accordance with the Statement of Requirements. Please check out the training locations below to find classes in or around your area.
