Welcome to NWeAES

Welcome to the website of the Northern Ireland Adviser on Employment and Skills. We hope find it informative in developing your business.

As the Adviser on Employment and Skills Our role is to provide evidence based employment and skills advice to the Minister for Employment and Learning and the UK Commission for Employment and Skills. I June 2009, We established an Advisory Group to support us in this role. In the year 2010/11, the Group commissioned two task groups to examine and make recommendations on the following areas to help improve our local economy:

  • identification of priority skills areas in Northern Ireland; and
  • improving the effectiveness of the employment and skills infrastructure.

We believe the recommendations in these reports will help to develop the employment and skills base needed to grow our economy. We would encourage you to read the reports and consider the findings and recommendations included in them.
