MWRSF Construction Skills Employer Briefing in association with the CIF

3 March 2022 


On Tuesday 1st March, the Mid-West Regional Skills Forum hosted a Construction Skills Employer briefing in conjunction with the Construction Industry Federation.

The event brought construction companies and Education and Training providers from the Mid-West region together to discuss the opportunities available for upskilling in the construction sector.

Collaboration between Industry and Education is vital to ensure we have the people with the right skills at the right time.

An informative roundtable discussion was held during which education providers highlighted the courses available under various government funding streams including Springboard+, Skills to Advance, Skills to Compete and Apprenticeships and construction companies were able to outline what gaps they see in the skill set of the current labour force and what upskilling courses are needed to fill these gaps.
