Northern Ireland's biggest careers fair has begun in the Titanic Exhibition Centre.

Skills NI is playing host to thousands of young people who are discovering a world of opportunities at the event.

It is aimed at 14 to 19-year-olds, their parents, teachers and influencers to help enlighten them about jobs and career choices, apprenticeships, courses, growing industry sectors and training opportunities.

The event was launched yesterday with a business breakfast at Belfast Metropolitan College's Titanic Quarter campus.

It featured speakers including Tommy O'Reilly of the Department of Education.

Skills NI is backed by headline sponsor NIE Networks, as well as NI Water, Barclays and the Department for the Economy. The event continues today.
