15th December, 2023

Dave Feenan, Network Director for Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet, reflects on a busy year of tech and ICT skills development in 2023 and looks ahead to 2024.

As the year draws to a close, we at Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet take a moment to reflect on the remarkable strides made in 2023. This year, the EU Year of Skills, has been a testament to our collective resilience, adaptability, and unwavering commitment to advancing skills development within the ever-evolving technology sector in Ireland.

2023: A year of milestones in skills development

2023 marked significant milestones in skills development. We have embraced emerging technologies, expanded our learning programmes, and empowered individuals to harness their potential, enhancing their capabilities to thrive in a rapidly changing digital environment.

Our commitment to upskilling and reskilling has been met with enthusiasm and dedication from all sectors of industry, fostering a culture of continuous learning essential for staying competitive in the fast-paced world we live in.

Giving the infinite nature of education, we believe there is always more to learn. By taking the guess work out, we’re continually developing learning pathways for in-demand and future-proofed industry skills, so you do not have to.

Looking Ahead to 2024: Charting New Frontiers in Skills and Collaboration

As we set our sights on the horizon of 2024, we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. The coming year holds immense promise for further growth, innovation, and collaboration within the technology sector.

In 2024, Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet aims to strengthen our partnerships, foster greater collaboration across sectors, and amplify our impact within the skills ecosystem. Our vision is to create progressive futures, helping organisations transform at scale and individuals develop an edge, through the power of learning. We creatively collaborate with industry to advance education in all its powerful forms.

By marrying future needs with human talent, we push the boundaries to reimagine what’s possible.

As we bid farewell to 2023, we express our heartfelt gratitude to all our stakeholders, partners, and participants who have been instrumental in our journey. Together, we will forge ahead, embracing the challenges and opportunities that 2024 holds, reaffirming our commitment to building a skilled, resilient, and future-ready workforce in Ireland.

Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year filled with learning, growth, and endless possibilities.
