Support for Business

Leading the City to Work


Belfast Met's award winning Business Development Team is dedicated to enterprise, economic development and employability.  We offer a huge portfolio of programmes and services, including training, mentoring, business support initiatives, consultancy, student projects, student placement and strategic graduate programmes.

The Business Development Team is based in the e3 building at the Springvale Campus, a state of the art facility with specialist facilities for industry sectors identified as having growth potential.

Belfast Met is the largest provider of further and higher education and training in Northern Ireland, so our links with business and our understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing organisations of every size and across every sector, is extensive.  We also work with numerous local, national and international business support agencies and constantly build on our networks of enterprise organisations and employers.

As a key provider of the skills and knowledge our economy requires, we see our work with industry, business, and local communities as our fundamental role.
