As part of the Action Plan for Jobs 2015, the Department of Education and Skills has developed a new National Skills Strategy 2025 - Ireland’s Future.

The strategy was developed in the context of significant reform in the education and training sector to ensure a more dynamic, responsive and high quality system that provides all learners with the knowledge and skills they need to participate fully in society and the economy.

A public consultation was launched to gather the views of stakeholders on the development of the strategy. A National Skills Strategy: Consultation document was published giving an overview of the education and training system, the labour market and business in Ireland and providing a series of questions for people to provide their views on. Submissions received as part of the consultation process may be accessed here

The National Skills Strategy 2025 – Ireland’s Future was published in January 2016.
