The Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN) was set up in the late 1990’s as an independent advisory body to Government on future skills needs for enterprise.
It comprises representatives from the education and training sector, the enterprise development sector, business, trade unions and government departments. It plays a key role in identifying the current and future skills needs of enterprises. The EGFSN Secretariat is based in the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.
