Public Affairs Ireland are delighted to announce the launch of the 2021 Training Card Incentive Scheme.


In line with ‘Public Sector 2020 – The Government Reform Framework’, which advocates training for Public Sector Personnel, Public Affairs Ireland has developed a training card incentive scheme.


Public Sector Organisations who avail of the incentive will be granted an additional 10% in training credits to be used on any Certified Course, Online Seminar or Workshop.


Since 2002, Public Affairs Ireland has focused on continued progress across the Public Sector. It aims to reinforce professional standards and help build a stronger public service through best-in-class training.

Public Sector Organisastion will invest upfront and receive an additional 10% in training credits. So for example those who invest €1000 will receive €1,100 in training credits to be used on any training in 2021. Your training credits can be spent on training your leadership, management, admin, or front line staff. It covers Certified Courses, Online Seminars, or In-House courses. This means even if a course is not scheduled to run publicly you can have it run in-house and online for your staff. All of our programmes can be tailored for your team. Or if there is training you would like us to develop with Industry experts and deliver for you at any time during 2021, we can do that.

The scheme aims to maximise training budgets of Public Sector Organisations and ensure value for money is achieved, as per the Government’s Expenditure Strategy for 2021.

We have a limit of €20,000 (€22,000 in training credits). This is to ensure all training can be delivered in 2021. If you feel you have several training programmes you would like delivered in 2021, surpassing the limit set, we could discuss this further.
