The Springboard Charity is working with Tourism Northern Ireland to launch an exciting roadshow of events showcasing careers in hospitality, leisure and tourism, exclusively for students in Northern Ireland!

‘Embrace Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism’ are full day events for school year groups 10-14, taking place from January to March 2023.

The series of events aim to inspire and educate the next generation on the exciting career opportunities and pathways that the students can follow in hospitality, leisure and tourism when they leave education.

Places will be limited on the ‘Embrace Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism’ events, which will take place in different cities and towns across Northern Ireland. Teachers and careers advisors of students in years 10-14 are urged to sign up quickly to take advantage of this great opportunity, fully funded by Tourism Northern Ireland and delivered by The Springboard Charity. Springboard offers specialist skills training and careers support for those entering the hospitality, leisure and tourism sector.

Carolyn Boyd, Tourism Northern Ireland’s Industry Development Manager, said “Our vibrant industry is powered by a dedicated workforce who are passionate and dedicated to delivering exceptional service across a range of career opportunities. Our industry is growing from strength to strength so there is no better time to inspire our young people and their parents to choose pathways in hospitality, tourism, and leisure. “

Caitriona Lennox, Head of Northern Ireland at the Springboard Charity, said: “This exciting partnership with Tourism Northern Ireland will hugely benefit the students who participate in the roadshow events, helping them to start making important decisions about their futures and opening their eyes to the broad range of careers available within hospitality, leisure and tourism. Plus it will play a key role in supporting employers in the sector in attracting the star workers of the future.”
