FÁS Funding for Train the Trainer
If you are currently receiving job seeker’s allowance, you may be eligible for funding towards your Train the Trainer certification. This is traditionally known as “FÁS Funding”.
Following a number of changes to the funding structure in the past few years, we have created this short article to provide you with a quick introduction to funding for your Train the Trainer…

Is FÁS Funding still available?
FÁS was dissolved in July 2013, so although many people still refer to “FÁS funding” it now goes by a different name.
Partial, and in some cases full funding for Train the Trainer courses remains available from the Department of Social Protection.
Am I eligible for funding?
Funding is primarily available for those on Jobseeker’s Allowance.
It is usually called a Technical Employment Support Grant (TESG), although other channels of funding may alternatively available.
However, if you think you may be entitled to funding, we recommend getting in touch with your local employment services office (Solas, Intreo, etc.) for more information.
How can I get started?
Contact your local employment services office (Intreo, Solas etc.) and let them know you are interested in applying for funding for a Train The Trainer course.
They may require an appointment to discuss this further and ask you to source information on the course you want to complete.
We are very familiar with the funding process and all of our courses are eligible for TESG funding. You can find information on our Train The Trainer courses throughout this website.
If you’re not sure which course is right for you, we are happy to help.
Get in touch with us directly, either by phone or by asking a question online. Our experienced training consultants will be happy to offer guidance on the best option for your training and certification.
