Announcing the outcome of a Departmental review in the Assembly today (Tuesday), Dr Farry showcased Generating our Success: The Northern Ireland Strategy for Youth Training, which is intended to create an internationally recognised system of youth training, centred on the needs of young people.
Stephen Farry MLA said the new training system will be transformational and for the first time offer training at Level Two to young people aged 16-24, regardless of their economic status.
“Alliance continues to be committed to providing training to young people to ensure they are given the skills and education to reach their full potential now and into the future. Giving them opportunities for further education or training and ensuring employers have access to their skills is vital.
“Investing in young people and integrating them into the world of work while at the same time ensuring they can progress to education and training at the highest level is crucial for our society and economy. Under Alliance, no young person will be left behind.”
