Hear from traineeship graduate, Niall Treanor:

“The main reason I chose this Traineeship was because I lacked first-hand ‘practical’ experience in digital marketing. I graduated from Sligo IT in Business and Marketing and found when I was going for interviews with employers the feedback I was getting, showed I lacked the experience. This Traineeship has provided me with that experience. It has also developed my skills in Video Marketing, Graphic Design, and Web Design. After completing the Traineeship, I gained employment with Cavan based web design company Opus Design.”

The Traineeship starts in September and Applications are being accepted now.  Find the application form today at
