SOLAS has declared a spend of €125.5m on training people for employment in 2020. The NTF will contribute €207.3 million in 2021. The increase from the 2020 allocation will allow SOLAS to continue with the provision of the Skills to Compete and the retrofitting programmes which were introduced as a part of the July Jobs Stimulus package in 2020.

Programmes which are funded from the NTF Training for Employment budget line include VTOS, Blended Training, Specific Skills Training and Traineeship.

I attach details of the number of places provided and the average cost per place on each programme of this funding for 2020.
