Skillnet Ireland

Government of Ireland & Skillnet-the client

Skillnet Ireland is a business support agency of the Government of Ireland, responsible for advancing the competitiveness, productivity and innovation of business operating in Ireland through enterprise-led workforce development.


The Irish Government needed 90,000 Irish companies to be able to negotiate the increased customs requirements of trading with the UK post-Brexit.


We reimagined 5 days of face-to-face customs training into a fully mobile experience: A training programme that would help avoid delays and disruption to businesses and customers as a result of incorrect or inaccurate customs declarations.

A scalable, hassle-free virtual training solution: Our challenge was to create a slick and scalable solution to cope with the 90,000 Irish companies who needed this training. We designed an end-to-end technology solution – from a company applying to the programme through to a learner being certified - all via a phone. It was also critical to minimise the admin overheads for the training provider (Skillnet).
