DETE Launches “Skills for Better Business” Initiative
The Department of Enterprise, Trade, and Employment, in conjunction with the Department of Further and Higher Education, have launched Skills for Better Business initiative, a two-part initiative aimed at assisting SME owners and managers across Ireland. This is on foot of recommendations by the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs in its 2020 management skills report, Leading the Way.
Skills for Better Business comprises an online tool for management skills assessment, complemented by a sign-posting resource providing quick contact information for management education and training. Once you have completed the 10-minute questionnaire, you will get a report indicating the areas of management development you may want to work on first. Each organisation listed has a brief description along with the types of training and courses they provide.
