Belfast Employment Academies

Training and a guaranteed job interview to help you get a job.

Belfast Employment Academies provide specialist training to help you get a job. We are working with employers to deliver Employment Academies across a wide range of different sectors to provide Belfast residents with the skills and qualifications needed to apply for hundreds of job opportunities.

Who can apply?

Employment Academies are open to anyone living in the Belfast City Council area currently out of work or working less than 16 hours a week. No previous experience or training is required. Preference will be given to those who are economically inactive or long-term unemployed.

Employment Academies are aimed at people who do not have the experience or qualifications normally required in the specific sector; as academies will provide the relevant training, licenses, qualifications needed. Unless otherwise stated, everyone who successfully completes is guaranteed an interview with at least one employer who is currently recruiting.

To be eligible you must be a Belfast City Council resident and currently out of work or working fewer than 16 hours per week.
