eWorker Training Course

Avondhu Blackwater Partnership is seeking participants to take part in an eWorker Course this November. This course should be of interest to people who would like to become self-employed or those who wish to create more flexible working opportunities enabled through the use of Information & Communication Technologies.


eWorking is defined as any business function that is conducted away from the office using modern communications and information technologies. Research indicates that 40% less Irish people work from home than the EU and given the stormy economic waters we are currently experiencing, now may well be the time for Irish employers to embrace eWorking. For an employer, eWorking can reduce office and parking overheads, attract and retain skills / reducing staff turnover, increase company flexibility and ability to change quickly. While for an employee, it may reduce commuting time, give more control and autonomy, often resulting in more motivated staff with higher job satisfaction, provide an alternative option to redundancy or resignation when a company or an employee relocates.


The course which is spread over eight modules includes:

An introduction to E-Working and Telecommuting
Essential E-Working Skills
Setting up a Home Office
Forms of E-Working and Relevant Legislation

Home Business Ideas and Income Generation

Setting up an E-Work Business and Marketing the E-Work Business

Financing  and the Home Based Business;

The E-Work Business Plan

With the establishment of the Rural Broadband Scheme as National Policy, more and more opportunities are being presented to individuals/ businesses to develop online opportunities. This eWorker Course will ensure that the participants will have the expertise and knowledge to capitalise on opportunities being presented by the information Technology sector.


The eWorker course will take place over 3 days from 9.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. on November 8th, 9th and 10th. The course is fully funded by the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013 LEADER Programme.


Places are limited as interest in this course is very strong. If you would like further information about this course, or if you would like to make an application, please contact Dave Foley on 025 33411 or by email: dave@avondhublackwater.com
