Action Plan on Apprenticeship 2021 – 2025 launched by Simon Harris TD
(c) www.gov.ie – 19/04/2021 – New Apprenticeship Action Plan Launched by Simon Harris TD
To ensure the apprenticeship system continues to deliver for both learners and employers, we have created a new Apprenticeship Action Plan. This initiative will ensure we have a modern apprenticeship system that is reflective of Irish society and supports both learners and employers along the way.
Currently there are 60 programmes leading to valuable qualifications in areas such as finance, accountancy, laboratory technicians, engineering, heavy vehicle mechanics and healthcare. The Action Plan aims to expand the types of programmes available, and increase the number of apprenticeships to 10,000 per year by 2025.
The Plan will work to ensure equity of access to ensure underrepresented groups are able to avail of apprenticeships by creating simplified routes to entry, and improved flexibility within the system.
There will be additional support for those in the apprenticeship system, including for employers, who will be encouraged and supported to take on apprentices through financial assistance and other mechanisms.
The Plan brings all apprenticeships together under one roof in a new National Apprenticeship office. There will be extensive and ongoing stakeholder collaboration as we bring the plan forward to ensure an exciting, modern, supportive apprenticeship system.
