Assured Skills Pre-Employment Training for Digital ICT companies

When a company is creating jobs in Northern Ireland, the Assured Skills Programme can help them access new talent and skills through the delivery of pre-employment training academies.

The Assured Skills programme is a short, demand-led, pre-employment training programme and is fully funded by the Department for the Economy. It upskills individuals and helps them compete for guaranteed job vacancies in expanding businesses or new foreign direct investment (FDI) companies.

The Academy Model is flexible and versatile, and has been used to help companies recruit new staff in areas such as software development, data analytics, cyber security and software testing. Academies can be delivered for one company where there are sufficient job vacancies, or as Collaborative Academies for more than one recruiting company.

This video tutorial is a recording of a recent webinar and will help you better understand the Assured Skills programme and the opportunities it can provide employers.
