40 Places now available on Assured Skills Academy Training Courses.

Graduates across the UK! It’s that time of the year again. Many of you will be facing the future with some trepidation. What next? What job? What career? Worry no more!

The Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland has a scheme to get people from different degree backgrounds into careers. It’s called Assured Skills. No specific experience is required, you need a degree with a 2:2 or above, in any discipline. If you did science or arts it does not matter - you can still apply.

Assured Skills is delivering training for many in-demand sectors including IT and Financial Services. The pre-employment training academy is six to 12 weeks. The Academies are run in partnership with employers who have jobs vacancies. You can hear from last year’s Academy students and read about their experiences as Assured Skills recruits below!

Each participant will be paid £150 per week during the course.

If you complete your training, you will be guaranteed a job interview with the company and 85% of those who have completed an Assured Skills Academy have secured a full-time position with that company.
