An Cosán

Finance Admin & Tech Programme

We are An Cosán, one of the largest community education projects in Ireland, providing innovative adult education programmes from Levels 1-8 of the NFQ, nationally. Our mission is to eradicate poverty through education. We want all community members who attend our programmes to reach their full potential and grow their capacity to take responsibility for social change in their communities, contributing to the eradication of poverty and social injustice.

We are delighted to have received a Skills & Opportunities Fund grant for our Finance Admin and Tech programme, which will give disadvantaged community members the opportunity to engage in a free, accredited financial administration and technology programme. In total, 20 participants in Tallaght West will work towards internationally recognised certification and gain enhanced knowledge and skills to either set up their own enterprise or enter the business or tech industries.

The 18-month programme will also offer mentoring, work experience and networking opportunities and builds on the success and learning from our previous project, Tech Army.
