A Seed of Advancement seeks support in terms of sourcing grant aided funding streams and wonders where the most up to date funding stream for an education, training and skills institute would be found. www.aseed.ie
As you are doubtless aware, the question is largely a question of, what specific activities are you looking for funding in? If you are searching for a grant that literally is for an 'education, training and skills institute', then your results will be limited. If however you are searching for a grant to cover a specific project that your organisation is working on, there may be many more options available.
A well-written and creative application can make you eligible for more schemes than, at first glance, you might imagine.
Fundingpoint contains the most up to date information available online for the Irish community and voluntary sector. The problem however is that many relevant schemes are currently closed to applications (and indeed have been for some time). If you were searching through Fundingpoint, you should not only pay attention to the update date for the specific scheme, but in particular pay attention to the deadline associated with the scheme as this is the most accurate indicator of the status of the scheme (each scheme is looked at and categorised according to the deadline: the scheme itself gets updated when the scheme actually relaunches or, in the case of ongoing schemes, when criteria changes.) Within the coming month there are several scheme deadlines listed in the Funding Diary, for example, that could - with a clever application - be applied to from an educational perspective (e.g. Support for National Organisations in CV Sector grant, various Wellcome Trust grants, various Leargas grants).
I am not familiar with any other resource that contains even nearly the same level of detail. However, you may like to keep an eye on some of the education-related resources listed here.
