The Minister said: “The Further Education sector plays a key role in the social and economic development of the people of Northern Ireland.

“Open days are an excellent opportunity for parents and prospective students of all ages to learn more about the wide range of courses and facilities available at their local College.

“Our local Colleges offer a unique learning environment with state-of-the-art facilities, along with quality learning and

support services.

“The Colleges also have collaborative links with business and industry to ensure that our courses have strong employment outcomes.

“Further Education Colleges play a key part in ensuring people have the skills they need to fulfil their potential, get into work, progress in work and contribute to our economy.”
