The six-week Academy, delivered through the DEL Assured Skills initiative, trained participants with the skills identified by Deloitte to be considered for a role with the company.

Minister Farry said: “I wish to congratulate all the academy graduates. Over the past four years my department’s Assured Skills Academy model has continued to deliver graduate jobs by providing employers with an opportunity to develop bespoke training programmes.”
