New digital skills programme to launch

For those interested in starting a business or career in the digital media sector a new Government-backed initiative may be just the incentive they need to get up and running.

The industry-linked digital media programme, WebElevate, will be launched next Tuesday, 19 July, to help plug Ireland's digital skills gap while supporting jobseekers to forge new careers in Ireland's booming digital media sector.

To be launched by Digital Skills Academy in partnership with Dublin Institute of Technology, WebElevate, a level 8 programme, will be focused on providing jobseekers with skills for employment in digital media, in areas such as mobile application development, web commerce, global digital marketing and web video production.

Part of the Government's Springboard initiative, WebElevate offers job seekers the opportunity to take up a part-time programme in higher education and training, free of charge.
