Apprenticeship Week NI

5 Feb 2020
The Department for the Economy officially launched the first Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week which will took place from 3 to 7 February 2020.
Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week 2020 is a new initiative in Northern Ireland and offered an opportunity through a dedicated week of events and promotional activity to demonstrate how apprenticeships work for individuals, businesses, communities and the wider economy.
Officially launching Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week 2020, Deputy Secretary of DfE Heather Cousins said: "I am delighted to launch the first ever Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week which provides the opportunity for everyone involved in apprenticeships, or interested in finding out more about apprenticeships, to come together during a week-long programme of apprenticeship events and activity.”
As part of NI Apprenticeship week, Northern Regional College invited St. Louis students from year 10-12 to find out more about the apprenticeships they have on offer. Pupils met with employers including Dowds Group, Sensata Technologies and Andor Technology in a series of workshops. The companies involved were particularly keen to work with our female students in a bid to address the shortage of females within the STEM sector.
St. Louis students left feeling informed and inspired. We thank NRC and the companies involved for providing an inspirational event.
