Donegal ETB in conjunction with RSF Launch Employer Portal
Donegal ETB has launched its new employer training services online portal. The portal was designed in conjunction with the NW Regional Skills Forum and can be accessed on the Donegal ETB Website. The portal outlines the range of training opportunities it can provide employers across Co Donegal.
A spokeswoman said: "This has been developed in line with government policy around engaging with local enterprise and other relevant stakeholders in order to formulate, co-ordinate and implement a coherent response by Donegal ETB’s Further Education and Training (FET) Service to the county’s training needs.
"The online portal was formally launched by guest speaker Mr Paul Diver, Owner/Manager of the Sandhouse Hotel and Marine Spa, Rossnowlagh and Chairperson of the Donegal Branch of the Irish Hotels Federation.
"The Sandhouse Hotel has been engaging with Donegal ETB around training for the hospitality sector over the last year and supporting Donegal ETB’s hospitality and catering learners to better understand how the sector works.
"The launch was part of a wider information session for employers, held in its Letterkenny Training Centre. The event provided employers with an opportunity to become more familiar with the services Donegal ETB provides to help meet the training needs of employers and enterprises, while also providing an opportunity to view the training facilities available in one of its training locations and to network with other employers, relevant stakeholders and training staff." Donegal ETB FET staff member Lorraine Murray took employers through the online employer portal.
Speaking at the launch, Donegal ETB Chief Executive Anne McHugh said: “We are delighted that so many employers and employer support services could join us here today at the launch. We are open for business and we look forward to working closely with you over the coming years to meet your training needs.”
This was also Donegal ETB’s final event of the week in its programme of events for European Vocational Skills Week and College Awareness Week which took place from November 20 to 26.
