- encourage individuals to acquire core skills, and nurture moral values embedding responsibility, respect and appreciation
thereby enriching life in the community and contributing to Northern Ireland's economic development. The Board will provide the necessary support services, advice and guidance in accordance with our statutory role, to our direct and indirect customers and partners."
