EU European Year of Skills – Putting Skills for SMEs Centre-Stage
Running from May 2023 until May 2024 the European Year of Skills 2023 will help companies, in particular small and medium enterprises, to address skills shortages in the EU. It will promote a mindset of reskilling and upskilling, helping people to get the right skills for quality jobs.
The IUA will mark the year with a series of campaigns, events, and engagements that will highlight the need to increase lifelong learning in Ireland, while meeting the big skills challenges of today. The recent OECD Skills Strategy Report for Ireland highlights the challenges we face, providing an important lens for our work at the IUA to influence national and government policy in the year ahead.
