Employability and Skills - Our vision
We help drive Belfast’s economic growth by supporting residents, employers and organisations to strive for innovation and excellence and creating pathways to growth and employment.
We focus on:
- developing strategic growth areas,
- driving learning and educational attainment, and
- designing and delivering programmes to support employability.
We’re keen to work with businesses and organisations to help them:
- recruit employees,
- explore work placement opportunities, and
- develop their workforce.
We want to work with and learn from organisations that are supporting residents to:
- access training
- develop their skills and confidence
- find employment
