Richard Bruton T.D, Minister the for Education commented on the upcoming event: “There are a number of pathways to further your education, whether you choose third level, a post leaving certificate course, or the apprenticeship and traineeship routes. This School Summit is a great opportunity for you to explore the different options available to you.” “Over the next number of years, Ireland will be facing a skills shortages and this needs to be addressed now. Through School Summit 2019 we aim to promote and create awareness among transition year and fifth year students about the options and opportunities that are available to them.”

There is growing evidence of a skills shortages in Ireland due to the low uptake on apprenticeships. To help address this growing issue, School Summit 2019 has engaged with and invited companies across the private and public sector to provide key information on apprenticeship opportunities, as well as third level institute options.
