A new initiative for Ukrainians in Ireland provides free education and scholarship funding
Ukrainians residing in Ireland who have been granted temporary protection status are eligible to take part in the program throughout the academic year (2022-2023). There are currently 45,000 Ukrainians living in Ireland, according to the Ministry of Education, Professional Skills, Innovation, and Scientific Research. Since they are all attempting to actively participate in Irish society, the government decided to provide them with the opportunity to pursue an education and find employment in the future.
Anyone can enroll in certification courses through the Post-Leaving Certificate Courses program. Training is provided in a variety of fields, including veterinary education, fishing, forestry, and agriculture. From September of this year, Ukrainians will not have to pay for the courses. Students were also given scholarships. It will be paid out in monthly installments over the course of a year for a total of 6,115 euros.
Additionally, earlier, the Irish government said that the nation's educational system could accommodate 41,000 Ukrainian refugee pupils. Children from Ukraine have been given about 25,000 spots in the nation's schools.
