Abstract

The purpose of this dissertation is to critically review government workforce development initiatives from the perspectives of some of the main stakeholders in the scheme.

The research was conducted using semi-structured interviews with those involved in developing the strategy behind the schemes and the views one provider of the programmes in the Dublin area.

The Springboard and ICT conversion skills programmes have been successful in returning people to jobs. Contributing factors to the success are the work-placements, career bridge modules and the collaborative aspect of the implementation of the programmes.

The findings indicate the continued need for these programmes over the coming years, with perhaps a different funding model being introduced at a later stage. A more cohesive approach from government departments could make the current schemes more effective and efficient.
