The six colleges of Further and Higher Education in Northern Ireland are working in partnership on a collaborative Apprenticeship Development Project, funded through the Department for Economy’s Apprenticeship Challenge Fund.
The Challenge Fund is part of the Department’s Apprenticeship Recovery Package for Northern Ireland, which channels financial support to help the apprenticeship system respond to the impact of the Covid-19 crisis.
Commenting on the new development, Louise Warde Hunter, Principal and Chief Executive at Belfast Met said, “At Belfast Met we have a deep commitment to skills and apprenticeships. We are fully aware of the critical role that skills will have in the economic recovery, and apprenticeships will be a central component of the recovery. The Apprenticeship Development Project… provides an innovative and collaborative project across the sector, with extensive expertise in teaching, training and engagement with employers across the regional partners.”
