Momentum delivers over 50 vocational education training (VET) programmes and workshops and trains over 600 people per annum through classroom training courses and thousands of others through blended learning and online courses. Momentum also has a strong marketing division specialising in content generation, digital media and social media.
Momentum will lead work package 4 on the eWBL project by developing a series of open educational resources and capacity-building courses that will help train the target audience. It will also organise a train-the-trainer event, where master trainers from each participating organisation will be trained to deliver the capacity-building courses in their respective countries. As well as delivering training, Momentum is deeply involved in course curriculum and content development and has numerous new courses accredited or pending accreditation with QQI in digital, creativity and innovation. Some recent projects in the digital sector include Balance, Digital Crossroads, Teach Digital, and Digital Balance.
The Momentum team is at the forefront of entrepreneurship education and policy contributions in Ireland. Momentum’s specific competencies relate to the design and delivery of innovative programmes for learners in digital and entrepreneurial skills development. They provide practical opportunities for adults and SMEs through the provision of training and opportunities to develop entrepreneurship skills which provide a route to business creation and business growth; while entrepreneurial thinking encourages innovation and resilience in all spheres, personal and professional. As our EU economy and society undergoes transformation, these qualities are important for all people and in particular eWBL.
