Work in Progress - Skills for a Modern Economy

Work in progress

We are currently undertaking work in order to produce this publication. Details of when we aim to publish the finalised report are indicated below.

Skills are vital for enabling individuals and countries to thrive in an increasingly complex, interconnected and rapidly changing world.  A broad range of government bodies have policy or delivery responsibilities for skills and concerns have been raised that the skills system is lacking a joined-up approach. 

This review will consider:

  • The vision and priorities for skills, including the existing arrangements and strategies for skills planning and development in Northern Ireland;

  • The various stakeholders and bodies involved; their roles and responsibilities; and the governance, reporting and accountability arrangements; and

  • Government’s approach to identifying current and future skills needs and its plans to develop skills.

We aim to publish this report in Summer 2024.
