What are the skills needs of the future? Posted on 22/08/2017 00:00:00 This updated report provides a detailed understanding of the skill requirements for the Northern Ireland economy up to 2026 with the aim of ensuring that any skills gaps are identified and addressed. The research analyses where the skills gaps are currently, where they are emerging and where they are likely to emerge over the longer term.

The Skills Barometer will continue to be relevant in shaping policy across all areas of skills provision as it will allow Government to allocate its funding in a more efficient manner to meet business needs and provide the evidence for more flexible responses to future skills needs. 

The barometer also acts as a driver for the further development of careers education, information, advice and guidance to provide students and their parents with information on the current and future labour market opportunities as well as employment prospects by level of education and by course.

The report shows the importance of skills at Level 3, Level 4 and Level 5 - which are the core offering within the FE sector.
