NLN runs a number of courses known as Employer-Based Training, which is a rehabilitative foundation programme designed for young adults with mild learning difficulties. These courses can lead to a QQI Level 5 Major Award General Studies 

The courses called ‘Employer Based Training’ in NLN centres run for up to 12 months and are flexible courses that enables students to acquire practical skills with a host company in a skill area of their choice. The course is a combination of on-the-job and in-centre training-usually 60% on-the-job and 40% in-centre. The Employer Based Training instructor supports both the student and the employer. Students choose a training area that interests and suits them and the Employer Based Training instructor finds a suitable company to accommodate them in their locality.
