IoD NI Skills & Workplace Forum Action Plan

Northern Ireland’s weak skills system must change to ensure the local economy can be competitive and attractive into the future, a new report urges today.

The IoD NI Skills & Workplace Forum Action Report sets out a series of recommendations for the NI Executive, business and the voluntary and community sector with a view to addressing skills shortages and ensuring Northern Ireland has the workforce it needs to grow the local economy now and into the coming decades.
