Bridging the skills gap for Northern Ireland’s young people and families with careers, jobs, skills and apprenticeships
Skills Northern Ireland is a highly innovative and interactive prestigious two day event, taking place at the Titanic Exhibition Centre, Belfast. It connects young people to jobs, skills and opportunities now in the future.
The event is aimed at 14-19 year olds, and teachers, parents and influencers helping young people to decide how to achieve the career of their dreams and/or make good decisions about their future learning and work.
A visit will ensure young people get the best possible start to their career journey through employer encounters, impartial careers information and advice and, most importantly, opportunities to gain ‘hands’ on experience of the world of work.
