Education & Training Boards continue partnership with Project FUTSAL

Project FUTSAL is an initiative delivered by Football Association of Ireland and originally funded via the European Regional Development Fund's Inter Reg IVA Ireland Wales programme. The Project aims to up-skill unemployed people to increase their prospects and potential for full time employment and encourage them to further their education. Many Project FUTSAL graduates have managed to start a career in the sports industry as a result of their involvement in the programme. Key partners in the programme are the Education and Training Boards in areas where the hubs are based along with Local Authorities who also play a valuable role in the hub operation.

Applications for 2016-17 project hubs are now open.
