People, and their skills and talent are central to economic and social prosperity. 
As the future of work continues to offer huge opportunities for Ireland, our businesses and our workforce, education and skills remains a significant priority for Irish business.  A responsive and dynamic education and training system is central to developing Ireland’s human capital and future innovation capacity.  Ibec campaigns to increase investment in education and skills development and to support greater engagement between enterprise and education. 
Working together, Ireland’s education and training system and Irish business can create a culture for lifelong learning, place a greater focus on employability skills and develop the skills and attributes required in the 21st century.
