training tenders Supply2Gov Ireland

It has been announced that Skillnet Ireland will release €2 million worth of funding to industry bodies and enterprise groups.

The national agency is responsible for the promotion and facilitation of workforce learning in Ireland and hopes that the funding will develop new Skillnet Learning Networks.

The scheme, which aims to support Irish businesses in addressing their current and future skills needs, will be launched in 2019.

 

Developing Ireland’s workforce

New technology, new regulations, market shifts and ever-changing demographics all mean that workplace training is more important than ever before.

Brendan McGinty, Chair of Skillnet Ireland, reinforced the importance of developing Skillnet Learning Networks:

“There is an ever-widening productivity gap between indigenous SMEs and multinationals based here. Therefore, it is imperative that Irish businesses remain competitive by investing in their workforce… The Skillnet Ireland model enables businesses to work together to identify the skills needed for their workforce development and to deliver relevant and impactful solutions to these skills challenges.”

 

Irish training tenders

With key players investing in the training marketplace, now is an excellent time for providers to look for training tenders.

The Irish public sector is investing heavily in workplace training. The Irish Government established a plan with 370 Actions to make Ireland’s Education and Training Service the best in Europe by 2026 – excellent news for SMEs that are looking to find training tender opportunities.

Start looking for these opportunities now by registering for free to Supply2Gov Ireland’s ‘Ready to Take Flight’ package.

Supply2Gov users get access to a free Irish local area of their choice: however, our Flying High customers get access to both Irish and British tender opportunities. This package is an excellent choice for Irish suppliers looking to break into the UK training market.

It is understandable that some Irish businesses have concerns over the UK’s decision to leave the EU. However, the fact that the UK is Ireland’s closest neighbour means that the UK public sector market will always remain a natural first option for Irish suppliers seeking to expand overseas.

Proximity is not the only benefit of working with the UK public sector. The vast number of opportunities available, a shared language during negotiations and similar business cultures make the UK public sector an obvious choice for any Irish business.

 

How much does the UK public sector spend?

If you are an Irish supplier thinking about doing business in the UK, then it could be well worth your time and effort – UK public sector procurement is big business.

It is estimated that the UK Government spends a massive £242 billion on third-party goods and services each year! From the NHS to housing and construction opportunities, the UK Government could be a valuable customer for a great many Irish businesses seeking to work with overseas public sector bodies and expand their client base.

 

Key opportunities for Irish suppliers

The ‘Exporting to the UK?’ report by Enterprise Ireland is a new guide for Irish business following the UK’s EU membership referendum in 2016.

Marina Donohoe, Enterprise Ireland Director UK and Northern Europe, says that “while strategies to offset whatever consequences arise from the UK vote are advised, businesses in Ireland would be missing a trick if they discounted the UK market”.

The report reveals seven key opportunities for Irish companies considering doing business with the UK public sector:

  • National Infrastructure Delivery Plan
  • Northern Powerhouse Agenda
  • Scottish Government Investment Plan
  • NHS Five Year Forward View
  • Water Market
  • Financial Services/Fintech
  • Aerospace
