Employment and Learning Minister Dr Stephen Farry hosted an awards ceremony for those graduating from the Academy at Belfast Metropolitan College’s (Belfast Met) E3 Campus. The six week Academy, delivered through the Department for Employment and Learning’s (DEL) Assured Skills initiative, trained 16 graduates with the skills identified by Deloitte to be considered for a role with the company. Assured Skills can provide tailored training to help employers find staff with the skills they need in order to expand. Minister Farry said, “I wish to congratulate all the Academy graduates. Following this second cohort, the Deloitte Human Capital Academy has now delivered 31 suitably skilled graduates for Deloitte.

“Over the past four years my Department’s Assured Skills Academy model has continued to deliver graduate jobs by providing employers with an opportunity to develop bespoke training programmes. “I am committed to helping grow a vibrant local economy and this is evident through my Department’s work with local employers to help meet their skills and employment needs through the Assured Skills initiative,” he added. The ceremony was attended by Academy trainees, along with representatives from Deloitte and Belfast Met. Jackie Henry, Consulting Partner at Deloitte, said, “Our Academy programme has provided an excellent opportunity for young people to learn the vital professional skills that both Deloitte, and other employers seek to embark on successful careers. “With the demand and competition for highly skilled people becoming more intense in Northern Ireland, programmes like the Human Capital Academy will help to ensure that we have a steady stream of talent to safeguard future growth.

He added, “Improving our citizens’ prospects is crucial to economic growth and Deloitte is very proud to play its part alongside Belfast Met and DEL.” Marie-Thérèse McGivern, Principal and Chief Executive of Belfast Met, said, “Congratulations to our learners who have completed the Deloitte Human Capital Academy. “The programme addresses a niche in the recruitment and HR sector, and the knowledge that they have gained during their training at Belfast Met and Deloitte will hold all of the Academy’s graduates in good stead as they continue to build their careers. “Belfast Met is delighted to work with the DEL and Deloitte to create an academy that has provided specific skills and career stability to graduates within a highly competitive job market,” she added.
