Non-IT graduates get job training

Published: Friday, 05 June 2009   Category: Science, IT and Engineering

People looking for graduate jobs who do not have a formal IT qualification can benefit from a range of courses from the University of Ulster.

The higher education campus is set to invest £500,000 in a new graduate scheme which allows those with no formal IT skills to brush up on the subject and gain work experience from local IT businesses.

Those looking for graduate careers will be able to compete for one of 25 internships through the University's Upgrade scheme, which is offered to postgraduates currently studying part-time.

Vice-chancellor at the university Richard Barnett said: "Ulster has invested half a million pounds into this new graduate scheme which focuses on providing students with a balance of work-based learning as well as academic study, enhancing their employability prospects within Northern Ireland."

In related news, there are expected to be more grad jobs in engineering available to university leavers this summer.

According to the BBC, the number of vacancies will rise by eight per cent.ADNFCR-1068-ID-19205753-ADNFCR
