North Belfast man, George Phillips is celebrating this month, as he was presented with a CCEA Celebrating Achievement Award at a high profile ceremony in Lisburn Island Civic Centre. This is one of the highest prizes awarded by the CCEA and recognises the outstanding progress and achievements learners have made in vocational subjects. George was selected as a shining example in the Business Enterprise section.
George’s award was for the success he has reached following completion of the Exploring Enterprise 2 Programme (EE2P) through North City Business Centre. 23 year old George, from the Old Park area of North Belfast, had to overcome many personal challenges to join the programme, which helps long-term unemployed people to get back into work and get a feel for business.
