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 / Social Welfare 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 / Social Welfare office. All Intreo Placement / Social Welfare Officers should be aware of the TESG.
- Demonstrate to your Intreo Placement / Social Welfare Officer that attending this course is part of your Action Plan to return to work
- If Intreo / Social Welfare deem the course you wish to attend to be an essential step in your Action Plan, they may fund you up to €500 per year for training. They will give you a form to be completed by us and returned to them for approval, this can be a quick process although at holiday times this may take longer so apply as soon as possible!
- Because Pery Square Business College will not be paid unless you complete a course we will ask for a €50 deposit to cover our administration costs, once you complete the course this will be refunded to you.
