Strong careers information and guidance is central to Ireland’s overall skills and human capital development approach. The OECD Skills Strategy Project, launched last year, is examining Ireland’s skills approach, which will include the importance of quality skills and careers information in ensuring that individuals are empowered to navigate and shape their career development, and their learning journey, in the workplace and through the lifecycle.   Minister Foley has recently announced in relation to the establishment of a new Policy Group for Lifelong Guidance as recommended by Indecon in its review of Career Guidance Tools and Information.  I am engaging with Minister Foley on these matters.
