Our Region

The South East Regional Skills Forum (SERSF) was established by the Department of Education and Skills (now the Department of Further & Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science) in 2015. It is one of nine Regional Skills Fora in Ireland. 

The Forum comprises representatives from industry and education & training, as well as various support organisations, and its purpose is to identify industry skills and training needs and see that the education & training providers respond to those needs. It also provides information to assist with the development of national policy relating to education and training in support of industry.

The SERSF provides:

  • a single contact point in each region to help employers connect with the range of services and supports available across the education and training system.
  • more robust labour market information and analysis of employer needs to inform programme development
  • greater collaboration and utilisation of resources across the education and training system and enhancement of progression routes for learners
  • a structure for employers to become more involved in promoting employment roles and opportunities for career progression in their sectors
