Give our bright young students a chance to shine
Yet again our young people have excelled at A-Level, outperforming their peers in England and Wales by nearly four percentage points.
Almost 30% of those who sat the examinations gained A* or A grades, a remarkable achievement.
What the results show is that Northern Ireland has a pool of very bright young people and we need to create an economy which will allow them to express their potential.
Many inward investors say the quality of the workforce was a key factor in their decision to come here.
That quality shows no sign of drying up.
