Skillnets Annual Report 2016

The Skillnets Annual Report 2016 highlights a positive year for the organisation. Funding levels were increased, and due to a continued demand for specialised talent companies engaged grew by 11%, with over 14,000 Irish businesses participating in the 63 training networks. A growing demand for the Skillnets offering was also apparent through the 50,000 trainees that participated in their programmes last year.

All Skillnets-funded programmes are subjected to independent evaluation each year. Preliminary results from the independent evaluation of 2016 programmes, given within the report, evidence the wide range of benefits experienced by businesses participating in Skillnets networks. 89% of businesses reported that being a member of a Skillnet had addressed skills gaps within their organisation. The full results from the independent evaluation will be available later this year.
