11 Irish Context for Project: Role of VET in Ireland Backdrop of short and medium term education and training policy objectives and drivers of changing skills needs within enterprise, including: The National Skills Strategy (NSS) vision for 2020 that 48 percent of the labour force will have NFQ level qualifications at 6-10, 45 percent of the labour force will be at NFQ levels 4/5 and the remaining 7 percent will be at NFQ levels 3 and below. A major strand in achieving the NSS vision is to upskill at least 500,000 people within the labour force (employed and unemployed). Of this 330,000 people are targeted for upskilling below levels 4/5. The current high unemployment challenge, particularly increasing long term unemployment and responding to structural shifts in the economy such as the increasing role of services and the implications of the collapse in the construction sector for future skills needs.
12 Current Context: Role of VET Cyclical challenge of the current recession - the overrepresentation of young people among the unemployed and the difficulties in opening up labour market opportunities for them. Longer term structural challenge of tackling early school leaving. Changing skills needs within enterprises, including those impacted by factors such as technological changes; minimum qualifications requirements introduced through regulation or industry standards and; increasing skills requirements within occupations, even those considered relatively low skilled. The need to provide more flexible and diverse forms of provision that enhance access and the learning experience for the individual, in addition to being current and relevant to enterprise needs.
13 Recurring Themes in Adult Education & Training Environment in Ireland Urgent need for reform of traditional education / training systems, institutions and work practices Need for development of a coherent & integrated VET system within an integrated National Lifelong Learning System & Infrastructure The bedrock of an effective Adult Education system is the capability of its personnel:- leaders & policy-makers who understand the requirements of future-oriented VET and professional, qualified teachers & trainers. Emerging technologies must be utilised within all strands of the system for communication, collaboration, teaching & learning
