“We are delighted to play a key role in this innovative event. 4C UR Future LIVE engages with young people in a fun but clever way, helping them identify the skills and talents they have a clear aptitude for. This early intervention to help inform subject choices for GCSE, and ultimately career choices for the pupils, is inspired. Their interaction with the games and activities will not only help to identify their talents and skills, but also give them a taste of the types of jobs and careers they can steer their studies towards in the future.”

“We’re so excited to take part in 4C UR Future LIVE. This is a unique opportunity for Year 9 pupils to gain an insight into their aptitudes and abilities, which will better equip them to make informed choices on their future career. By supporting this event, we are hoping to inspire a new generation of young people to choose a career in manufacturing and engineering. There has never been a more exciting time to join this fast-moving industry, which is embracing the digital technologies of the fourth industrial revolution.”

“The future of work is changing. Advancements in technology are just one factor that is significantly impacting the types of jobs today’s young people will embark upon in their lifetime. We’re delighted to support 4C UR Future LIVE, giving Year 9 students the opportunity to learn about career options in a hands-on and interactive way, so they can make informed choices not only for their GCSE subjects, but for their own futures as well.”

“We’re delighted to support the work of 4C UR Future. The idea of a traditional career has changed. 4C UR Future informs and educates young people about their own strengths, and the wide range of opportunities available, as well as informing parents, guardians, teachers, and those who influence teens when making important decisions about their own futures. Through 4C UR Future, young people are also informed of career options that many would not normally be exposed to during their everyday education. 4C UR Future is a vital resource for young people in Northern Ireland, promoting and cultivating a culture of opportunity, innovation, and ambition.”

“We understand the importance of developing young talent early-on, who could join our business and go on to become the Managers and leaders of tomorrow. We’re therefore delighted to be able to support 4C UR Future, inspiring talent at a younger age, and helping young people develop both interpersonal and transferable employability skills, while raising awareness of the vast array careers and opportunities within the agri-food and technology sector, prior to the students selecting their GCSE topics.”

“We are delighted to be involved with 4C UR Future. The LIVE events give us the opportunity to engage directly with young people from across the province who could be the next generation of Logisticians – ensuring the wheels of our industries keep turning. This opportunity for schools and pupils is critical for industry, as this grassroots engagement will endeavour to ensure our industry meets its skills demand for years to come.”

4C UR Future LIVE is a fantastic concept that provides Year 9 pupils with more information about the current career market in a fun and interactive way. They may discover a talent for a role they were not even aware existed. Working in the Logistics and Transport industry, we are very aware that there are skills shortages in certain positions. This event may provide students with alternative careers choices and could help our industry to develop a skills pipeline for the future.”

4C UR Future will help to teach our young people the utility of knowledge and point to where this might take them.”
