DEL careers advisor placements
The careers service in Northern Ireland is an integral part of the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL). The careers service provides an impartial careers information, advice and guidance service to clients of all-ages and abilities throughout Northern Ireland.
Last year we facilitated a three day industrial placement for three DEL careers advisors. The focus is on employers with a need of priority skills in the STEM sector.
This initiative aims to provide opportunities for careers advisors;
- To gain a deeper insight and understanding of the skills, attributes and qualifications required in various occupations in the STEM sector
- To enhance their understanding and knowledge of real-life issues in the sector, business practices and the challenges they face
- To increase their knowledge and awareness of various career routes, current trends, job opportunities and job roles in the STEM area
