National ICT Day!
Bring IT On
The demand is on for IT professionals right now! This promising message was made clear to our Year 13 students who attended the National ICT event in the Waterfront Hall on Tuesday 28th February. This event was organised by e-skills UK and approximately 600 pupils from 40 schools across NI attended. Mr Alan Shannon, Secretary for the Department of Employment and Learning said that the IT & Telecommunications sector will be the most important engine for economic growth in NI and that 9,000 new entrants will be needed in this sector over the next 5 years.
Our Year 13 pupils also had an opportunity to meet with employees who work for IT Companies in NI as well as representatives from Queens and the University of Ulster.
