The Office of Government Procurement ran a competition in 2021 for a multi supplier Framework Agreement and Services Contracts for the provision of contracted Further Education and Training Services in Education and Training Boards (ETBs). The successful companies under the Galway Roscommon ETB Lot are: Eden Computer Training Limited – trading as Eden Training; Chevron College Limited; FRS Training, Irish Times Training and partners; Klangley Investments (Cork) Limited, trading as Impact Training and KT Business Skills Limited. These companies are responsible for the delivery of training through Irish, should this be required from them.

While GRETB has held introductory meetings with all contractors, drawdown contracts for training programmes have yet to be issued to any successful companies through the new framework. No services have been procured through Irish to date under these frameworks.
