Those who have completed a Springboard+ course within the past two years (i.e. graduated from a 2016 or 2017 Springboard+ call course ) are not eligible to apply in 2018 (unless the participant is seeking to progress their qualification level in the same discipline, e.g. level 7 to level 8).

Participants who enrolled in more than one Springboard+ course since the inception of Springboard in 2011, and did not complete any course, are not eligible to apply in 2018.
Participants who enrolled in just one course, since the inception of Springboard+ in 2011, but did not complete, are eligible to apply in 2018, but will be required to meet all eligibility criteria.

Your eligibility for Springboard with regards to social welfare benefits issues is best discussed with your INTREO case officer.

Academic Entry Requirements 

Please see information on entry requirements on each course page. Please note that we cannot make any offers until applicants upload the required documentation - e.g. copies of qualifications certificates or transcripts. If you don't have a scanned copy of your degree parchment or transcript then simply take a photograph of it with your phone and upload that.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Where candidates do not currrently meet the formal academic entry requirements (set out on each course information page) they may be able to advance their application using the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) mechanism. RPL allows candidates to make a case that they do meet entry requirements through a combination of formal certified learning and learning through experience (most typically work experience). RPL applications must be made by filling out (please type) the Springboard RPL form and submitting it along with supportuing documents such as academic certificates and transcripts etc.
