The OECD is currently examining Ireland’s skills strategies to address skills shortages in Ireland & prepare us for future global shocks.

On Wednesday 19th October the OECD met with the National Skills Council with a view to finalising its recommendations & announced a national roadshow where they will travel the country over the next two weeks meeting with businesses & educators on the next steps forward.

Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris has strongly encouraged businesses, employers, individuals, education and learning providers & all stakeholders, to have their say on the future of skills & talent in Ireland.

Minister Harris said '“We need to ensure that Ireland's skills system stands as a central and effective enabler for Ireland’s competitiveness and economic and social sustainability while we accelerate digitalisation and the transition towards a climate-neutral economy.  That requires us all and over the next two weeks, the OECD will be going across the country to hear from enterprises on the ground about what you need'.

Regional workshops will be led by the OECD & will bring together RSF Members, Managers and Chairpersons, and representatives of enterprises (MNCs, SMEs and Micro Plus).  The workshop for the North West, Mid East & North East regions will take place on 27th October from 10.30am - 1.00pm in Cavan Digital Hub, Kilmore Business Park, Dublin Rd, Pollamore Far, Cavan,
