Councillor Glenn Barr, the Ulster Unionist Party Candidate for the Banbridge DEA, has called on the Sinn Fein Education Minister to boost the economy by investing in more entrepreneurship courses in schools.
Mr Barr said: “The secret to rebuilding a strong and vibrant economy in Northern Ireland comes not just at the job creation level,
But also in our schools where we can instil a keen interest in entrepreneurship in our pupils.
“These young people will be the entrepreneurs of the future business community so it is important that they learn these skills at an early age.
“That is why it is important for the education minister to invest in entrepreneurship courses in all schools and colleges.”
