W5 LIFE

W5 LIFE

W5 LIFE (Learning Innovation for Everyone) is dedicated to addressing the skills requirements of Northern Ireland’s increasingly digitalised economy.

Launched in 2022, this centre promotes inclusion and diversity through immersive STEM-based experiences and provides wider access to skills training, leading to exciting career paths and opportunities.

A range of programmes and activities have been developed specifically for this centre, including collaborations with founding partners, Microsoft, Almac and Belfast Harbour. W5 LIFE is also the new home to the Creative Learning Centre, Nerve Belfast.

W5 LIFE provides a natural progression from the existing W5 provision of general and curriculum-based learning towards careers and employment-led initiatives.

Our programmes follow three pathways:

Children and Young People
Making STEM and digital learning more meaningful and inspiring by applying knowledge and skills to complex real-world problems that require initiative and creativity.

Skills
Creating a digital ecosystem to enrich each learner’s educational and employment journey, meeting the expanding need for STEM and digital skills.

Lifelong Learning
Advancing STEM and digital thinking skills with a broad range of delivery mechanisms to ensure that programming is accessible and inclusive for all.
