National Skills Council
A key element of the National Skills Strategy was the establishment of a National Skills Council.
The National Skills Council will:
Advise on prioritisation of identified skills needs and on how to secure delivery of identified needs
Have a key role in promoting and reporting on the delivery of responses by education and training providers to those priorities
The National Skills Council includes representatives from senior levels in the public and private sector. It is an advisory, non-statutory body under the remit of the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science.
