Over the next four years, Skillnets will be driven by three strategic goals that take into consideration funding, national policy concerning the importance of developing skills and talent, and the needs of enterprise and the economic context.

Skillnets’ goals reflect the essential needs of industry, as articulated by enterprises during the broad consultation process that underpins this strategy.



Skillnets strategy serves to support national economic growth, and bring real results to enterprise at a regional and sectoral level. Skillnets goals are also closely aligned with national policy and will contribute to the implementation of national workforce development aims, as highlighted in Ireland’s National Skills Strategy 2025.
