Youth2Work was developed by Microsoft and FIT just over a year ago as a response to the youth unemployment issue in Ireland.
With a €3 million investment by Microsoft and a target to engage 10,000 youth through training, the initiative is aimed at equipping unemployed youth with in demand skills for the jobs market.

FIT’s mission is to promote an inclusive Smart Economy by creating a fast track to marketable technical skills for those at risk of unemployment long term. It is the primary industry skills development initiative facilitating collaboration with government, education and training providers and disadvantaged communities to enable greater access to employment for marginalised job seekers.
FIT ICT Skills Audit
The FIT ICT Skills Audit was undertaken in response to the unprecedented number of unfilled vacancies in the ICT sector. The findings are significant and provide valuable insights for policy makers, the education and training sector and for ICT sector companies.
