SFA Skillnet

Established in 2019, SFA Skillnet is a multi-sector learning network for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Working in partnership with its members, the network runs programmes supported by government funding to address skills gaps within the industry.




Who we are
The SFA Skillnet was established to help small businesses (from sole traders to SMEs) upskill their teams in a cost effective and practical way. No one understands small businesses and their challenges like we do. We know you are time poor and sending a staff member on a training day, or taking time out from your business is a big deal, but if you don’t upskill your team, you can’t grow. We have devised a range of training programmes, listed below, specifically designed to maximise learning in a short time frame, with practical and actionable outcomes so you can get back to what you do best, running your business. To help you keep costs down, our training programmes are heavily subsidised. You can receive up to a 60% saving on the cost of upskilling your team.

The SFA Skillnet is free to join and our training programmes are funded from the National Training fund through the Department of Education and Skills. All training delivered by the network is funded by Skillnet Ireland and our member companies. With members across every sector of the economy, we have superb networking opportunities. Membership is open to businesses based in the Republic of Ireland.

Skillnet Ireland is mandated to support private sector enterprise. Public sector organisations and companies based outside the Republic of Ireland unfortunately cannot become part of a Skillnet network. Charities and not-for-profit organisations can take part in Skillnet training courses, by ensuring the payment for training does not come from public funds.
