It’s part of a national allocation of €17m to four higher education institutions, in response to the growing demand for apprenticeships.

Minister Simon Harris is visiting ATU Galway today on foot of the announcement – and will later open a new student accommodation block at University of Galway.

Speaking to Galway Talks, he said apprenticeships are absolutely vital – and there are now more options than ever before.
