Pupils learn the skills to success at Young Enterprise event

YOUNG Enterprise Northern Ireland recently helped students from Newbridge Integrated College to gain work-readiness skills and essential employability expertise through the delivery of the hands-on educational programme, Success Skills.

Supported by the Department of Education, Success Skills helps students learn how to find, get and keep a job, and guides them to develop personal strategies to achieve lifelong learning and career success.

The programme equips students with the skills to negotiate their way around the job market and the contemporary world of work, and is highly relevant to the challenges businesses face today around the development of human capital. Success Skills helps young people succeed in the new global economy and a fast-changing workforce driven by knowledge, information and innovation.

“Success Skills helps students prepare to navigate the changing currents of an uncertain economy, enabling them to chart a course for personal and professional success,” said Cathy Morrison, Senior Development Manager at of Young Enterprise Northern Ireland. “A company’s greatest asset is its people and their skills, and Young Enterprise is proud to be investing in our future workforce.”

Young Enterprise is Northern Ireland’s foremost business and enterprise education charity and all its programmes are based on the principle of ‘learning by doing’, to promote a culture of enterprise from an early age.  All activities are delivered by fully-trained business volunteers from partnership organisations and supported by a variety of public and private sector organisations.
