National Learning Network provides a range of flexible training programmes and support services for people who need specialist support (job seekers, unemployed, people with an illness or disability) in 50 centres around the country. The SOLAS & HSE training programmes, all of which include work experience, offer nationally recognised qualifications including QQI, ECDL, and City and Guilds ensuring that students are ready to get a job or go on to further education
We design, develop and certificate NCFE and CACHE branded qualifications, apprenticeships, Functional Skills and more, with over 500 nationally accredited qualifications in our portfolio. All are supported by our exceptional customer service and unique, friendly approach. Last year, 340,000 learners from 2,000 educational institutions chose us to move their careers forward.
The Department of Education's extended schools programme aims to improve levels of educational achievement for disadvantaged children and young people by providing the additional support that they might need to help them reach their full potential.
