Future Classrooms 2013

Allstate NI's Bro McFerran spoke on the importance of IT skills and education on Friday 1st March at NI Future Classrooms 2013. The education conference was held at The Titanic Building in Belfast and was designed to help education leaders and key decision makers discuss strategies for the creative use of technology in the classroom. The overall aim is to ensure that young people today have the right skills and will be prepared for the changing work environment of tomorrow. Topics included mobile technology, software development and future education and were discussed by a broad range of speakers across the IT industry, education sector and arts industry.

Bro had the following to say on the subject,

"Northern Ireland's challenge moving forward is not lack of jobs but lack of skills. We need to ensure that educators know that IT is not only a great career choice, but also that there are literally thousands of jobs available in NI today, there are millions of jobs globally, and I expect that demand will continue to grow in all our lifetimes".
