Building A Strong Ecosystem
Training the Next Generation.

We are dedicated to the education of NI’s future engineers and retaining the knowledge and skills that currently exist within the province. It is important that each young person becomes familiar with different functions within the business to gain knowledge of job roles, and experience first-hand the diverse career paths that manufacturing has to offer. The industry is constantly changing and evolving and engineering is one of the key skills in demand within Northern Ireland. This is why it’s important for us to look to the future to understand what is coming down the line.

We believe that igniting the spark of engineering and manufacturing at a young age, will help us recruit and retain the best talent in the future. This is an important objective and long-term investment for IPC and aligned to our skills strategy for future growth, and is also why we actively participate in a range of STEM related activities and events.

Case Study
Science Summer School 2024.

One of the initiatives that we support to ignite the spark of engineering in young people is the Science Summer School hosted by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, which aligns with our dedication to educate our region’s future engineers.

Established by Professor Brian Cox CBE, OBE, FRS and Lord Andrew Mawson OBE in 2012, the Science Summer School ‘activates the curiosity’ of young individuals, and aims to encourage more young people and students in science and engineering focussed careers, through exposure to STEAM related subjects and activities.

During the January 2024 Science Summer School event at The Braid in Ballymena, our team hosted a workshop for attendees on ‘Quality in the Manufacturing Environment’. Find out more in the video attached.

Supporting our community
Building Strong Links.

We have established very close links with all of our local schools, colleges and universities, accepting placements at various levels.

Our schools’ visits have proved hugely popular to local primary and secondary schools. Whereas our apprenticeship programme offers hands-on experience to young people who are interested in furthering their knowledge of STEM related subjects, and we are proud to have partnered with Ulster University and Queen’s University to offer placement opportunities to students.

We are a passionate supporter of local social enterprise, Access Employment Ltd, which supports those with disabilities, health conditions and social disadvantage into meaningful employment.
