On announcing the workshops Head of Department of Business Ray O’Connor Desmond said; “Kerry has a large number of its workforce employed within the retail sector, which has been significantly affected as a result of the COVID19 pandemic with many staff being made temporarily unemployed. While this is a difficult time, it could also present an opportunity to those workers to reskill, upskill and consider their future career plan. We are offering these workshops as a way to meet that need.”

Head of School of Business, Computing and Humanities Mary Rose Stafford said; “As the only higher education provider in Kerry we are uniquely placed to react to changes in the business environment.

“Many of those retail workers who have found themselves out of work as a result of the current pandemic may not have engaged with formal education for some time and may find the idea of returning to education daunting.

“These workshops are ideal for those looking to take the next step in their career and to work in a COVID19 altered world. It will be even more important for the retail sector to continually upskill to stay competitive and relevant as Kerry and Ireland reopens for business.”
