Career pathways to be showcased to parents and pupils at employment exhibition

The Your Child: Their Future ‘Pathways to Employment’ exhibition returns on Wednesday 1 March, 5pm - 8pm at the Balmoral Hotel, Belfast

Parents and pupils from across Northern Ireland are invited to learn about the career opportunities of today and of the future as the Your Child: Their Future exhibition returns to Belfast.

Taking place at the Balmoral Hotel, Belfast on the evening of Wednesday 1 March, the Your Child: Their Future Pathways to Employment fair will bring local employers, training providers and educational institutions together in one room to meet with teenagers and their parents and guardians as they consider their next steps.

Created by employers Allstate NI, EY and EverQuote, the exhibition will be an informative evening aimed at educating parents on the world of work, the trajectory of local industry, and the potential career routes it presents for their children.

An informal evening that’s free for all to attend, it will provide access to over 15 exhibitors including Catalyst, PwC, Parenting NI and Bring IT On.

Parents are encouraged to attend with or without their children to meet with employers and talk to organisations that offer apprenticeships, work experience and volunteering.

They will receive guidance on the careers that exist in today’s society, the pathways into a successful career, and the skills, qualifications and subject areas that will support their children to achieve it.

Alan Ruddock, Engineering Manager at EverQuote and Your Child Their Future organiser, said:

“We are excited to be hosting another Your Child: Their Future exhibition to showcase the pathways into employment that exist in Northern Ireland. In business, we know that young people are the future of our organisations yet as parents, it can be tricky to guide and support your child towards an enjoyable and rewarding career. Young people preparing to leave school have never had so many opportunities, however it can be difficult to make sense of the options out there.”

“Next month, we hope to help families navigate this time by inviting them along for a tea or coffee and a chat with leading employers, universities, and training programmes. This is about finding out what’s out there and we feel that bringing everyone into the one room is the best way to do so.”
