An opportunity for upcoming school leavers and jobseekers to explore current and emerging vacancies available through the college and with onsite employers from sectors including business and accounting, health and construction.
Rachael Smith, Director of Apprenticeships and Work-based Learning at the college said: “It’s very much the case that the knowledge and experience you gain as an apprentice will carry you throughout your career. They also help futureproof businesses by developing a talented workforce.
“So, if you’re interested in finding out about upcoming vacancies, funding sources, our huge range of qualifications including Apprenticeship Standards, T Levels and degree apprenticeships as well as anything else apprenticeship-related, join us next week to explore what lifelong skills can do for you or your business.”
