OECD Skills Strategy Northern Ireland - assessment and recommendations

As part of the process to develop a new Skills Strategy for Northern Ireland the Department for the Economy engaged with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to assess the key skills issues impacting the local economy and to develop a range of recommendations. The report was launched by OECD on 23 June 2020.

Constructive dialogue between government and stakeholders

The project was commissioned in September 2019 with the aim of fostering constructive dialogue between government and stakeholders, to develop a shared understanding of Northern Ireland’s skills challenges and recommendations as a basis for action. 

The OECD team hosted a number of workshops and seminars in various locations across Northern Ireland. Input received from stakeholders has been an essential ingredient in shaping the final recommendations contained within the report. 

Developing a new Skills Strategy for Northern Ireland

The OECD recommendations will form part of the work the Department is taking forward to develop a new Skills Strategy for Northern Ireland, to take us through to 2030.
