Welcome to the Mid-West Regional Skills Homepage
The Future of Learning Requires a Public -Private Partnership.
The underlying strength of the Mid West Region is built upon a spirit of partnership and collaboration which is reflected in the work of the Regional Skills Forum. The forum is comprised of education and training providers working together with industry and enterprise to identify and address current and future skills needs.
According to a Labour market report by Accenture '65% of today's primary school children may work in jobs not yet created'. If we are to succeed in matching talent with the skills required then our challenge is to understand the specific needs of industry today and into the future. To do this collaborative partnerships between industry and education providers are both necessary and essential in terms of course design and delivery. The Mid-West Regional Skills Fora on behalf of Government are the primary organisation responsible to both establish and strengthen these relationships.
