Shine a Light Night For Homelessness | TSK Academy X Network Ireland Kilkenny

Shine a Light Night for Homelessness in Ireland

On Friday 15th October, we have teamed up with the The Hoban Hotel and Network Ireland Kilkenny to support Shine A Light Night for Homelessness in Ireland.

Across Ireland, 925 families including 2,193 children are currently without a home.

By participating in Shine A Light Night, we are raising vital funds to help the most vulnerable people in our communities.

In 2020, support for Shine A Light Night allowed Focus Ireland to move 883 families out of homelessness.

  • €200 Can help provide vital support for children in emergency accommodation
  • €1000 Can help provide childcare for a child living in homelessness – ensuring that parents have a space to focus on exiting homelessness
  • €5000 Can help a Focus Ireland Child Support Worker to work with up to 20 children who are experiencing the trauma of homelessness

Please Help us help them by donating to our virtual sleep-out in aid of Shine A Light Night 2021. Donate Here:

Press Release

For immediate release

31 August, 2021 Co. Kilkenny, Ireland

Training Solutions Kilkenny is expanding

Training Solutions Kilkenny is now a limited company, and is expanding the growing offering to introduce TSK Academy.

Due to the overwhelming success of our training offering in the last 12 months, Training Solutions Kilkenny is expanding!

From September 1st 2021, Training Solutions Kilkenny will become Training Solutions Kilkenny LTD and we will launch TSK Academy, a dedicated online learning base for all your training needs.

Nothing changes for the learner. You will still get the same 5* experience, from live, interactive, online classes to our in person classes. We are streamlining the process of finding and engaging with course content to help Training Solutions Kilkenny reach more learners. 

The Training Solutions Kilkenny website will now become the home for our corporate and organisation offerings and resources, as well as our dedicated career guidance for those in human services. 

TSK has grown in size since Jeanette launched her first workshop in June 2020. Laura, our first additional tutor to support Jeanette, joined in January 2020.

In March, 2021 we welcomed Shanna, supporting Jeanette in the office and in June 2021, we welcomed Louise. Our second welcome tutor and social media expert. 

The course offerings have grown from a single workshop to three whole CPD accredited courses. We also have individual workshops, group workshops for schools, and bespoke consultancy for organisations.  With new product launch announcements in the coming 12 months, we want to centralise the training offering and make it easier for our learners to access our services, while continuing to build our relationships with schools and organisations around the country.

Why TSK Academy?

An academy is: “a place of study or training in a special field”. 

Our ethos is to provide excellence in human services, this is exactly what we do!

We want to remove any barriers to attracting learners from outside our locality. We are a small Irish business but we want to connect with as many people as possible who could benefit from our training!

The TSK Academy website is currently under construction and courses will be made available shortly. We also have a very active social media presence on Facebook, Instagram, and a private group online for learners to connect outside the classroom.

NEW Course…

September will also bring the launch of our brand new Accredited Course ‘Play-Based Learning and Curriculum Development’ on the 8th of September, 2021. 

This course is primarily targeted towards  new, existing and upcoming Childcare Professionals. The course compliments the L6 ECCE module Curriculum Development. 

With the childcare industry being massively understaffed, we know there are many families who are at home with their little ones and we want to bring the creche experience to you. 

The course covers theories of play and practical examples of how to give your child the best sensory and learning experiences to get off to a great start. 

We look forward to you all taking this journey with us and thank everyone for their continued support.

Being your own boss

Today went really well. I delivered my content with @gstess in Dublin.

You know when you’re worried about your content as a trainer and you question yourself?


You are an expert in your field.

Remember that!

I’d like to thank the team in @goatstowneducatetogether for welcoming me and giving me the opportunity to be a part of their continuous professional development in Neurodiversity.

It was an absolute pleasure 
