Ireland is implementing a comprehensive and forward looking National Skills Strategy and Action Plan for Education, which aims to make Irish education and training the best in Europe by 2026.
The Government’s Technology Skills Action Plan (2014-2018), aims to maintain Ireland’s position as a global leader for technology talent and skills.
This will be achieved through a number of measures one being the issuance of up to 2,000 employment permits per year to experienced technology professionals with skills in high demand. In addition to this through the Tech Life Initiative, the government plan to increase the number of people working in tech in Ireland by 3,000 per year.
