Springboard+ 2018/19

Our next Springboard+ Information Evening will be held on February 20th, from 6pm in our Aungier Street Building. 

Dublin Business School (DBS), in conjunction with the Higher Education Authority (HEA) is delighted to announce, that as part of the Springboard+ 2018/19 initiative, we will be offering more Government funded Springboard+ programmes commencing in March 2019.

DBS Springboard+ programmes are now available regardless of your employment status. They are free of charge to applicants who fall under the Springboard+ 'unemployed' & 'returners' categories and there is a 10% contribution fee for applicants who are in the 'employed' category. The HEA will fund 90% of the fees for successful employed applicants. Please see individual course pages below for further course information and the Springboard+ website FAQ page for eligibility information.

The one year part-time programmes are in the areas of ICT, Big Data, Digital Marketing, RegTech**, IT & Finance among others. They are delivered part-time for people who are employed and also allow applicants who are on social welfare payments, return to employment and continue with the part-time programmes after securing employment. 

DBS will also be offering two year, part-time accredited Level 8 Higher Diploma ICT skills conversion awards in the areas of FinTech, Data Analytics, Software Development, and Web & Cloud Technologies. These two year ICT skills conversion courses are delivered part-time and designed for people who are employed.

DBS is also offering a full-time Level 8 Higher Diploma in Science in Data Analytics programme, which is designed for, and free of charge to, people who are on Social Welfare more than 9 months or those who fall into the ‘homemakers/returners' categories.

All DBS Springboard+ programmes are fully accredited by Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI) and span Levels 7 & 8 on The National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ), to suit applicants with a range of prior qualifications and 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.

All programmes are now open for applications through the Springboardcourses.ie website (entry requirements apply for all courses).
