Welcome to the Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet Website.

We hope you will enjoy our new website design, format and links.


The Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet was established in January 1999 by a number of Senior Managers in organisations in the Carlow Kilkenny area. Initial discussions showed that the organisations shared common training problems, namely,

  • Access to information on courses / training, and new technologies
    available for training purposes.
  • Sourcing training programmes.
  • Finding courses that were relevant to the specific needs of each organisation.
  • The location of available courses.
By working together, these organisations have developed new, low cost, customised, and locally based solutions for their management and staff.
