National Skills Bulletin 2020

22 October 2020 

Foreword by Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris, T.D.

"The analysis presented in this report aims to both assess how Ireland’s labour market stood in 2019 and how the restrictions imposed as a result of COVID-19 have impacted the outlooks across almost one hundred occupations. Using all available indicators to identify the skills needs of the labour market has never been so essential as Ireland continues to navigate through unprecedented times."

"While much remains unknown, the National Skills Bulletin is uniquely placed to identify the outlook across many occupations and analyse the profile of the people employed in these roles so as to assist with the direction of education and training interventions required over the coming months. This is a very valuable contribution as we all continue to work together towards our country’s recovery."
