On 26 November, ICE Regional Director Richard Kirk addressed the annual convention for Northern Ireland careers teachers. Speaking to a room of 200 representatives from schools across the country, Richard made teachers aware of the exciting and varied careers in civil engineering, highlighting the undersupply of civil engineers which was documented in a recent government report.

Using the theme Making a World of Difference Together, Richard encouraged the advisors in their work and assured them that ICE is willing to partner with them through our ambassador programme.

"It was a great opportunity for ICE to influence where it matters most, Richard said. "Our careers teachers have a task which is both important and difficult, and we wanted them to know that we are here to support them in this vital work".
