Gloucestershire College is inviting young people and their parents in to its Gloucester Campus this March to learn about apprenticeships and meet the employers looking to recruit them.

The Apprenticeship Information Evening – Gloucester Campus on Wednesday 22 March 2017, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Guests to the Apprenticeship Information Evening will get the chance to explore the different types of apprenticeships available through the College, including degree-level apprenticeships. They’ll also have the opportunity to visit six industry zones, where they can speak directly to the Gloucestershire businesses who will be recruiting apprentices in the coming year and find out about the roles on offer. Prospective apprentices can even apply for live vacancies on the night.

The apprenticeship zones are:

  • Construction and Motor Vehicle
  • Engineering
  • Health, Social Care and Early Years
  • Catering and Hospitality
  • Professional Services and Creative Industries
  • Retail

Companies from around the county will be represented at each of the zones; amongst them will be construction employers: Clarkson Evans, EG Carter and Complete Utilities; engineering firms: Spirax Serco, Poeton and Leoni; financial businesses: Hazlewoods and St James Place; as well as caterers, The Patisserie Box.

The GC Apprenticeships Team will be on-hand on the night to explain the different levels of apprenticeships and qualifications you can achieve as an apprentice. They can also offer insight into entry requirements, typical wages and the career paths an apprenticeship can lead to.

Current apprentices will be sharing their experiences in their current roles and answering questions about life as an apprentice.

Julie Tegg, Head of Work Based Training at Gloucestershire College, said: “Myself and my team of apprenticeship experts are very excited for the Apprenticeship Information Evening, which will provide a real insight into how apprentices work and the wide range of opportunities with local employers.”

“We will be joined by employers from a diverse range of industries at our six apprenticeship zones, including those who currently train GC apprentices and those who will be hiring an apprentice for the first time; all of which will be looking to take on new apprentices in the next year.

“The event will give prospective apprentices the chance to talk face-to-face to employers for a real insight into what they are looking for, and even apply for current vacancies in person.”

The Apprenticeship Information Evening is free to anyone considering doing an apprenticeship and parents are welcome to attend. Book your place at the event at: www.educationthatpays.co.uk

We look forward to seeing you there!
