Graduates will be focussed on preparation for employment and how to optimise their opportunities for success in a competitive market.

The Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Stephen McCann said: “ASPIRE developed the Graduate programme as it recognised the difficulties faced by graduates making the transition from education to employment upon leaving university.

The programme, which is part funded by the Northern Ireland European Social Fund 2014- 2020 and the Department for the Economy, will challenge graduates to prepare for this next stage, providing practical guidance, developing key employment skills and attributes, with training and development designed to support the progression from university to the world of work.”
