Be prepared for responsibility and the rewards and problems that come with responsibility. It is very important to be comfortable making decisions and living with them. While it is impossible to be right all of the time the majority of decisions you make have to be correct.

FIT Initiative



            FIT 10 Year Event - Industry Perspectives from Fast Track To IT 

FIT is an industry-led initiative which works in close collaboration with government departments and national education and training agencies, local development organisations and a host of community based organisations. Our primary partners in education and training include SOLAS, ETBs (Formerly VEC), Third Level Institutions, Leargas, Leader Companies, Rapid Coordinators, Local Authorities and Employment Pacts.

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 & training providers and disadvantaged communities to enable greater access to employment for marginalised job seekers.

FIT Ltd, a registered charity and not for profit organisation, was established in 1999. The Initiative develops and promotes technology-based programmes and career development opportunities for job seekers who have become detached from the labour market in an increasingly knowledge-based economy.

Since it started in Dublin in 1999, FIT has expanded substantially and now operates across the Republic of Ireland. More recently FIT has commenced programmes in Northern Ireland under the banner FIT-NI.

To date, over 18,000 job seekers have completed FIT skills development programmes of which in excess of 13,500 progressed into employment. 4,000 job seekers are currently participating in FIT programmes.

Recently the EU Commission cited FIT as one of the most effective employability initiatives in Europe.

Technologies now permeate across all industry sectors and the work of FIT is now more crucial than ever. As Ireland moves towards a knowledge economy the FIT iniatiative continues to ensure that all job seekers will be equipped with skills to compete for new opportunities as they emerge.
