A Network of Regional Skills Fora was created as part of the Government’s National Skills Strategy and provides an opportunity for employers and the education and training system to work together to meet the emerging skills needs of their regions. This is achieved through a more structured engagement on the skills agenda, and the work of the Fora contributes to better outcomes for learners and supports enterprise development. The Midlands Regional Skills Forum covers Laois, Longford, Offaly and Westmeath.
The Forum members work in partnership to proactively identify skills needs – existing & projected – across the region and put in place collaborative action plans between industry and education/training that build solutions to these so; local talent supply is as well aligned to local industry need.
