Forecasting the Future Demand for High Level ICT Skills in Ireland, 2017-2022, which was a key input into the development of the third ICT Skills Action Plan, Technology Skills 2022, marks the continuation of the EGFSN’s supporting role to the ICT Skills Action Plan process- a previous study, 2013’s Addressing Future Demand for High Level ICT Skills informed the development of the ICT Skills Action Plan 2014-2018. The report is a qualitative and quantitative overview of the market, technology and service trends, and demand for High Level ICT Skills in Ireland over the period 2017 to 2022. ‘High level’ is defined as those skills required for designing, building and implementing high level ICT systems i.e. Computer and Electrical/Electronic engineering skills at NFQ Levels 6/7 and Levels 8+.
