Here’s what Jennifer had to say about the Webnet+ programme: “I completed the WEBNET+ Programme in 2020 and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you are thinking about starting your own business, or just have a vague idea, then this is for you. When I started last February 2020 I had 4 weeks in the classroom and the rest took place on Zoom. So, I can tell you that the Zoom classes were just as good! The instructors, guest speakers and everyone involved were fantastic and always ready and willing to give advice. If you are considering doing this course, then go ahead and change your life” – Jenny.

Have you ever wanted to work for yourself? Maybe you have an idea that you’d like to turn into a business? If so, we really want to hear from you! Don’t put off the opportunity to find out about self-employment and how to go about starting up. 

WEBNET+ is initiative of Partas CLG, and is co-funded by the Irish Government under the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020, which means that participation is FREE.. 

Due to current restrictions the training is currently delivered online on the Zoom platform. Please don’t be put off by this, this is still a great opportunity to meet like-minded women, and share experiences, all under the guidance of highly skilled tutors. It consists of 18 weeks, one morning a week from 10am – 1pm.  Along the way there are two QQI accredited training awards in Career Planning (Level 4) and Start your own Business (Level 5). You will also be part of a network consisting of all the women who have participated in any WEBNET+ programme. 

The next programmes will start on Tuesday 7 Sept 2021 (18 weeks) and another one on Thursday 7 October 2021 (18 weeks).
