All training courses offered by the LEO South Cork are now cancelled until further notice. While some due to be held later in the year are bookable, please be advised that they may be cancelled as the situation progresses

We will continue to run Business Advice Clinics, but instead of taking place in the office, we will be providing the service over the phone with the Business Advisor

Our Mentoring Services will continue, and will be FREE for all applicants. 

We strongly encourage all clients to engage with the advisory services the LEO can offer, and get all the guidance that's available to you at this time
