Mayor of Galway Mike Cubbard launched a new specialist diploma in corporate environmental planning programme at the PorterShed in Galway.

Skillnet Ireland’s learning network Next Level Skillnet has developed the Level 8 specialist diploma in corporate environmental planning in collaboration with NUI Galway.

This exciting and innovative programme will concentrate on resource efficiency and environmental improvement opportunities and was developed in response to industry demand for this type of programme. The programme will be delivered part time over one year.

Speaking at the launch, Gerard Murray, network manager, Next Level Skillnet, said: “The launch of this programme comes at a critical point for the environment where sustained damage to our planet may occur unless we change our policies. This programme can help us make Irish business world leaders in the area of sustainable energy utilisation and environmental protection.”

Skillnet Ireland awarded funding to Next Level Skillnet last year, under its Future Skills programme, to develop this programme in collaboration with industry. The objective of the Skillnet Ireland Future Skills programme is to encourage collaborations between enterprise, academic institutions, and industry training providers to develop innovative programmes that speak directly to the future skills needs of business and that address gaps in existing provision.

Applications are now being accepted for a start in September with a closing date of July 31.
