Technology Skills 2022: Ireland’s Third ICT Skills Action Plan has been developed to support the continued growth of the Irish ICT sector, the broader Irish economy, and Ireland’s status as a global leader in ICT talent and skills. This structured approach to addressing Ireland’s high-level ICT skills needs was established in 2012, with the publication of the ICT Action Plan – Meeting the High-Level Skills Needs of Enterprise in Ireland. This was followed two years later by the publication of the ICT Skills Action Plan, 2014-2018 – Government, Education and Industry working together to make Ireland a global leader in ICT talent. This document provides the context and background for Technology Skills 2022: Ireland’s Third ICT Skills Action Plan, a collaborative effort between Government, industry, and education and training providers to increase the pool of high-level ICT skills in Ireland.
It sets out a comprehensive suite of actions required to boost high-level ICT skills into the future. This includes actions that will impact both now, and also those which will form the basis for the long term delivery of high-level ICT skills across the economy. Technology Skills 2022: Irelands Third ICT Skills Action Plan provides a focus on those high-impact actions required to deliver a significant increase in the level of high-level ICT skills over the four year period to 2022.
