The Technical Employment Support Grant (TESG)
Many people do not know that in cases where your local Education Training Board (previously known as FAS) is unable to provide training in a particular field - and where the applicant is currently unemployed and seeking training in said field - INTREO may provide funding for the prospective learner to receive such training at a private college, such as Pery Square Business College.
One of the schemes setup for this purpose is The Technical Employment Support Grant (TESG).
What Do You Need to Do?
- Visit your nearest Intreo office. All Intreo Placement Officers should be aware of the TESG (or your Social Welfare Office)
- Demonstrate to your Intreo Placement Officer that attending this course is part of your Action Plan to return to work
- If Intreo deem the course you wish to attend to be an essential step in your Action Plan, they may fund you up to 100%.
