As school leavers eagerly await their results and consider their future, a multitude of career progression pathways is available to them at their local Further Education College. South West College (SWC), in conjunction with the other five Further Education Colleges in Northern Ireland (NI), have collaborated to fully inform prospective students of their options by producing a package of resources to promote and enhance the immense range of apprenticeship schemes available within NI.
South West College in association with the Department for Employment and Learning and the Connected programme held a Business Breakfast for employers in the construction and engineering industry entitled ‘Working with Partners in Industry’ in the Gallery Restaurant Omagh Campus on Thursday 3rd April. The event was held to promote engagement on Foundation degree courses at the College.
Young people who have successfully completed the Connections programme at South West College were recently praised for their efforts in overcoming personal barriers to return to education, training or employment and urged to continue to believe in themselves to achieve their goals.
