IRISH TRADE SKILLS 2021
While it’s no secret that there is a serious skills shortage in Ireland right now, the solution is a little harder to recognise.
World Skills Ireland 2021 will promote skills in apprenticeship, traineeship and graduate courses through competition linked to WorldSkills International standards. It will encourage students, their parents and in some cases teachers and careers advisers to engage positively with career choices that provide learning and earning potential from the first day of registration.
There can be nothing more empowering than a real face to face opportunity allowing students, parents and teachers to experience the realities that so many of our apprenticeships and skills can offer today.
