These 'not to be missed' events promise a wide variety of opportunities for all young people leaving school or college this year as well as 16-24 year olds looking for work and training. County Training also offer the pre-apprenticeship programme ‘Advance’ which has been designed for those individuals not yet ready for an apprenticeship or college.

Parents and carers are welcome to attend the events to find out about the range of apprenticeships, work and training opportunities available for their sons and daughters. Starting to consider personal aims and aspirations at an early stage can increase confidence and understanding of the next steps among those attending.

Councillor Ann Hartley, Portfolio Holder for Children Services said: “The Secure your Apprenticeship events encourage local young people to take control of their future and to see that an apprenticeship could be the right path for them as work based learning is increasingly becoming the preferred method of gaining a secure footing on the career ladder”.

There will be real opportunities to secure job interviews or places on work related training programmes. All those who would like to come along will receive a free pack with information on career options and a handy booklet full of hints and tips on CV writing, interview techniques, speculative letters and employers expectations.
