On Wednesday 25th January 2017, the North Belfast Schools Careers Convention was held in the Valley Leisure Centre. Over 900 young people from 7 schools attended the event which was supported by representatives from industry, local training organisations and universities.
The pupils had the opportunity to talk to employees about their career, opportunities in their company or organisation and the qualifications needed to progress into the wide range of careers. Pupils could also try a virtual reality parachute jump, with the Army, sample the fresh crepes being made by the catering students from Workforce Online or handle some (small!) animals from Belfast Zoo. Many thanks to all the organisations who put so much effort into making this event such a success!
