Connect To Success NI Apprenticeship Platform Launched

The Department for the Economy has announced the development of a free online resource that allows businesses to advertise apprenticeships and/or school work experience opportunities.

The Connect to Success NI system is available through NI Direct website.

Apprenticeship can help all types of businesses across a wide range of sectors. They can help equip your workforce with the practical skills and qualifications that your organisation needs now, and in the future, and you will enjoy the benefits of having a loyal and motivated workforce that you have trained to meet your own specific business requirements.

Providing school work experience opportunities will introduce young people to the reality of working life to help them secure and sustain employment. By taking students on work experience, you get an opportunity to engage, inspire and inform young people about what working life is really like.

How do I advertise my opportunities?

To place opportunities onto Connect to Success NI, simply register your business with Connect to Success and then upload any apprenticeship and/or school work experience opportunities. You can nominate a training provider to act on your behalf if preferred. This will allow you access to a wide range of potential applicants - efficiently, effectively and at no direct cost to you.
