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.

Launch of Skillnets’ Statement of Strategy 2016-2019

Skillnets launched its four-year strategy on 3rd November 2016.  The strategy was developed following a thorough consultation process with key stakeholders, including Carlow  Kilkenny Skillnet, and is closely aligned to the National Skills Strategy 2025 and other relevant policies. Speaking at the launch of Skillnets’ Statement of Strategy 2016-2019, Paul Healy, Chief Executive, Skillnets said: “Skillnets will be playing an increased role in maintaining a supply of the specific and future skills that impact on the growth potential of Irish firms. By working on the ground with our networks and member companies, we are exceptionally well placed with the intelligence and insights to ensure training interventions are relevant to the needs of enterprise and are of a high standard.”

Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet welcomes the launch of this strategy and will work with its members to ensure we  maintain a supply of training interventions relevant to the needs of our member companies .
