Message to schools / pupils from Minster of Education – Michelle McIIlveen

“The School Summit NI is a valuable experience for our schools. Young people will get a good opportunity to explore and experience the many opportunities that are available across our diverse educational landscape.

I am determined to work towards a world class education system that will benefit all of our learners. I am working hard to ensure that all of our children and young people are equipped with the skills they need to succeed in life and that throughout their education journey they are provided with opportunities, guidance and support to achieve this.

The School Summit NI is wonderful example of this working in practice, as it promotes the importance of Apprenticeships/Traineeships, Further & Higher Education, Careers, Mental Health as well as a host of other educational initiatives. 

I would like to welcome all of our schools and young people to the event and I thank the organisers for supporting our schools and making this opportunity available.

I hope you enjoy School Summit NI and everything that it has to offer and I wish all pupils, their parents and carers, and all education staff well in the new academic year."
