College Connect

If you are aged between 16-24 and not currently in employment, education or training, College Connect is perfect for you!

  • Achieve a Level 1 Qualification
  • Build your skills
  • Work on your CV & interview skills
  • Sample courses in your chosen area
  • Receive support from your mentor


Belfast Metropolitan College, in partnership with five Northern Ireland Further Education Colleges, will deliver the College Connect programme. College Connect targets young people aged 16-24 across NI and will be operational during 2018-2022. During this period Belfast Met will through the College Connect programme help young people via supporting their integration into further education and employment within the Hospitality sector.

College Connect will provide a bridge into level 2 provision and further apprenticeship opportunities. Delivery will be underpinned by a comprehensive ‘wrap around’ support network provided by 2 mentors.

This project will focus on developing hospitality and employability skills.
