Shannon Training Centre is gearing up to launch new courses next year in areas including aviation skills and robotic welding, in response to rising demand for apprenticeship options.

According to James Power, centre manager at Shannon Training Centre, the number of Irish school-leavers choosing apprenticeships has doubled in the last three years to total 16,000.

“To accommodate this growth, we have received approval to lease an additional 75,000 sq ft building,” said Power.
