"I was one of the lucky few who took advantage of the RED programme in UL. For me, a key benefit I got from this programme was the support that accompanied my job search. I would strongly recommend this programme to all who might consider it. It has value for people of all ages and levels of experience who are striving to enter or re-enter the workforce. Currently I am employed with a multinational company in a job that is immediately relevant to my interests and career path. I attribute my success in this largely down to this programme."

"Undertaking the Diploma in Innovation Management with the AUA in conjunction with ulearning Skillnet is proving really beneficial to my work. At work I can see the practical applications of what we are learning on a daily basis. While studying and working can be a challenge, it has helped me focus my time at work and at home better in order to get the most out of my studying. I find myself thinking about problems differently and applying different solutions to old problems with improved success. ulearning is helping me achieve a diploma which fits around my work and is helping me advance my career at the same time."

I would not hesitate recommending the Red Programme to other students who are in my situation.

"It is with great pleasure that I am able to commend the RED programme, as presented by Ms. Daly in particular. The programme in general provided much information and opportunity to reflect constructively on the issue of how to develop my career. The speakers and course content were uniformly excellent. However, above all it was the enthusiasm and positivity shown by Ms. Daly that were the most valuable aspects of the course to me. I count myself fortunate to have done the course, and I am clearer about the form that I would like my future to take and how to achieve my goals".
