Belfast Met is the largest further and Higher Education College in Northern Ireland and one of the largest in the UK.
We have developed a dynamic new curriculum that mirrors the priority growth areas identified for Northern Ireland as this is where future jobs will be created. Through our partnerships with industry, we constantly adapt our curriculum to meet the skill demands of our economy.
We provide a unique breadth of education and training at every level and have designed a portfolio of courses to address a variety of skill needs – from apprenticeship and Level 1 courses, to those undertaking degrees and post-graduate studies. Coupled with this is our commitment to ensuring that our students have access to opportunities that will enhance their employability and job-ready skills.
Our focus for the future is to support the development of Belfast by providing education, training, and skills development to enhance individual, community, and economic prosperity. Over the next three years, we will sustain and improve our responsiveness to learners, employers, and communities.
The College has already built an excellent reputation with employers for offering relevant, high-quality learning. We will build on this by focusing on developing long-term mutually beneficial partnerships and becoming recognized as an expert in key and emerging growth areas. Working in partnership, we will increase the participation, progression, attainment, and skill levels of all our students.
