Fastrack to Information Technology (FIT CLG) is a not-for-profit, industry-led organisation which works in close collaboration with government departments, national education and training agencies, local development organisations and a host of community based organisations. FIT’s mission is to promote an inclusive Smart Economy by creating routes to marketable technical skills for underrepresented tech talent. Established in 1999, FIT’s initiative is to develop and promote technology-based programmes and career development opportunities for those who may have become detached from the labour market in an increasingly knowledge-based economy.
Since then, FIT has expanded substantially and now operates nationwide and are Ireland’s appointed coordinating providers of the National Tech Apprenticeships at Level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications. These Apprenticeships aim to attract and grow the talent pipeline by providing training in Software Development; Network Engineering and Cybersecurity.
Working in collaboration with delivering partners Dublin Dublin & Dún Laoghaire Education & Training Board, a Tech Apprenticeship in Cybsecurity is starting in the coming weeks.

“I have always had an interest in the IT industry but was unsure of how to get my foot in the door. The apprenticeship programme provided me with the knowledge and hands on experience I needed to develop my skills to meet industry standards, Being an apprentice is an exciting position as you are always learning and striving to improve your skills” Matthew Cook, Network Engineer Apprentice with Definitive Solutions.
