The Innovation Acadamy is running the UCD Postgraduate Certificate in Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Enterprise.
The training starts on the 23rd of February and will run for 18 weeks, 2 days a week from 9am - 5pm.
This is the first time the course is running in Wexford, an 18 week course has just recently finished in Waterford and it has also been run in Clonmel.
Lee Chin, Wexford GAA, Cllr. Ger McCarthy, Mayor of Wexford and Madeleine Quirke, CEO Wexford Chamber, showed their support at the launch of the programme that aims to assist job seekers in Wexford.
The free programme has been developed and run by the Innovation Academy UCD and is funded by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) Springboard+ Initiative. It aims to offer an innovative approach to third level education - which to date has resulted in 72% of all graduates going into regular employment or establishing their own business.
The course applies a 'learn by doing' teaching method with no exams and attracts a diverse mix of people who either wish to start their own business, embark on a new career or rejoin an existing career path.
The course is taught by a team of academics and entrepreneurs such as Alison Coleman, from Dunmore East, an entrepreneurial specialist with a background in security and fraud investigation with leading entertainment company Sky and Kathleen Doran, who is from Wexford and who is an Associate Facilitator with over 15 years Project Management experience with leading multi-nationals including Apple Computer, Symantec and Microsoft.
