At LSC we talk a lot about the importance of upskilling not only as a way to future proof your career but as essential to maintaining international competitiveness for the Irish Life Science sector.

Our previous blogs on The Importance of CPD for Life Science Contractors and Upskilling Courses in the Life Sciences state the importance of keeping your skills up to date in a sector where technology is advancing at an accelerated pace.

In response to the recognised skills shortage in the Irish Life Science industry there are some fantastic courses currently available through the Springboard+ initiative in the sector.

Previously only open to the unemployed, the programme is now open to those in employment with 90% of the fee funded. All of the courses offered lead to awards at certificate, degree and post-graduate level and the vast majority are one year or less in duration and can be studied online/part time.

We’ve segmented the courses by discipline if you want to look at the area most relevant to you, you might find something of benefit!
