Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NI Chamber) has launched a new forum to provide members with an opportunity to feed into the new Skills Strategy for Northern Ireland.

‘The Future of Skills’ forum regional sessions will address the skills-related challenges facing businesses here, assess what local employers are already doing to combat the skills shortage and what more must be done to facilitate economic recovery and growth.

A series of regional sessions will be held in partnership with NIE, at which attendees will have the opportunity to share their own experiences and contribute to recommendations made to the Department for the Economy on the Skills Strategy for Northern Ireland. The first event will be hosted online on Friday 18 September.
