How will TechLEARN help my company?


The responsive online learning platforms are customised to existing skill levels, job roles and technology areas. Whether staff are at foundational, intermediate or advanced tech skills levels, the extensive content on TechLEARN platforms will enhance competence.

They also provide project management, people management, digital marketing and professional skills paths, to integrate tech skills with new work skills for the future.

Digital will be the new normal, as services and business models are re-invented to embrace the accelerated digitisation of business operations, marketing and sales, HR and supply chains.

The Technology Ireland DIGITAL Skillnet already has over 1500 staff already learning on its TechLEARN platforms – at a time that suits their schedules, on whatever interface is best for them, at their own pace.

Recognising that many companies have staff on furlough, short time working hours or who need to develop skills in new technologies, this is the time to upskill staff, develop new technology competence, support staff development or re-deployment and protect future careers.

This initiative is in partnership with Technology Ireland, the sector body for the tech sector in Ireland, and is funded by Skillnet Ireland.
