Is a Career in Environmental Health for You?
11 February 2016
Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s Environmental Health Department, in partnership with Ulster University Environmental Health Degree Course took part in the Ballyclare Learning Community Careers Convention held at Ballyclare High to promote the role of the Environmental Health Officer as a career.
The information stand gave students an insight into the work carried out by the Environmental Health Department across the areas of health and safety, food safety, environmental protection, public health, health and wellbeing, consumer safety and licensing. The stand included examples of the equipment students will come into contact with should they decide on a career as an Environmental Health Officer.
Pupils and parents were also able to find out the University entry requirements and topics covered in the degree course. Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council works closely with Ulster University providing placement opportunities for Environmental Health students – a key requirement for gaining employment in the field.
