A MA­JOR event pro­mot­ing skills and ap­pren­tice­ships will re­turn to Belfast next month.

Skills NI takes place at Ti­tanic Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 18 and 19.

It’s billed as a ‘one-stop shop’ for ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties, fea­tur­ing em­ploy­ers, uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges, who’ll be dis­cussing higher ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing providers and ca­reer guid­ance or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion says it hopes to address young peo­ple’s fears that they lack the con­fi­dence and skills to suc­ceed.

Busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man- ager Chris Kim­mins said: “We’re de­lighted to be bring­ing Skills North­ern Ire­land back to Belfast.

“Last year was ex­tremely suc­cess­ful and this year we are pos­i­tive that we will ex­ceed 80 or­gan­i­sa­tions, with over 8,000 pre-booked vis­i­tors ex­pected to stream through the doors over the two days.”
